After your first dose you should see a difference in about that first week, you will get the full effect around week 5 or 6. Make sure that you don't stop taking it until you are finished with it so that your body can absorb all that it needs.

Did you come up with that level you will be taking through your doctor, or is it through a non-medical source ? And how did you discover you had a vitamin D deficiency ?

The daily dose for a woman, according to the National Institute of Health, and FDA is 400 I.U. per day.

Was it a doctor that suggested taking 25,000 IU at once ?
That sounds unlikely and I would not do it unless there were a valid medical reason and a doctor specifically prescribed it. The side effects could be very serious
