Are there any contraindications to taking vitamin D?

Is 2000 IU of vitamin D safe?
Mayo Clinic recommends that adults get at least the RDA of 600 IU. However, 1,000 to 2,000 IU per day of vitamin D from a supplement is generally safe, should help people achieve an adequate blood level of vitamin D, and may have additional health benefits.
What is the best time of the day to take vitamin D?

When should I take zinc morning or night?
