Hello and thank you for your question.
Based on your question, I understand that you are worried about the condition of your mother and I will try to help you.
First and foremost, always consult your doctor or pharmacist before taking any dietary supplements. As for taking vitamin D supplements, avoid using vitamin D in excessive dosages with some blood pressure medications. Vitamin D can produce hypercalcemia, which may impair the efficiency of the medication.
However, I suggest you to contact our doctor online for further information and management.
I hope this answer helps you. Thank you.
