Hi, I have been taking Vitamin D3 5000 I.U. daily for hormonal acne and depression in 1000 I.U. softgel form. Is there any diffrence between taking one 5000 I.U. softgel and five 1000 I.U. softegel in effectiveness? Thanks!

    No, there is not a difference!
    If you have not been taking it for very long then I would keep to the 5000iu. If it does not work, though, you may need to take a higher amount of Vitamin D!
