I'm a 56 yr old male. I jusr started taking vitamin D 1000 IU this past weekend. I couldn't figure out why I was belching. after I googled my problem, I now understand what's happening to me.What I need to know now is how to get rid of the belching. I discontinued the vitamin.
Alta Hanlon on Jun, 8, 2012:
The form of the D you are taking could be the cause. I use the drops under the tongue. Also, always take vitamins with food.
