Vitamin D, Depression and Weather in the Northwest
Patient : I live in the Northwest and suffer from pretty brutal depression. I have been told, that due to our winter weather, Vitamin D can be pretty helpful, since we get next to no sunlight for such an extended period of time. Is it safe for me to take a Vitamin D supplement and if so, what amount? Should I discontinue use in the Summer?
