hi sean i don't qualify either - not in US, no meds.
but i will say that i have a pharmacist for one my heroes
i didn't know it, but when i was in almost my worst condition ever, it turned out i had side effects from taking larger doses of vitamin d3 at the same time as smaller doses of calcium and magnesium.
this particular pharmacist told me i needed to take some magnesium at the same time as the d3, and some separately. i had been suffering severe dysphagia up until that point, so bad that i felt like my life was in danger. the pharmacist's suggestion restored my throat function in two days (it took a lot longer to get my magnesium stores back up, but the scariness was gone).
anyway, pure genius. i went back later to tell him how much i appreciated his expertise.
now anyone that is taking lots of vitamin d3 and comes within range, hears from me to ensure properly balanced mineral intakes, with attention to timing
good luck with your studies!
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
