I am a mother of 5 month old baby. I have been advised to take supracal hd for a period of 6 months post delivery. In this covid times many are advising to have vit d3 capsule to boost immunity. Can I take the vit d3 capsule 60k one a week and a multivitamin with my regular medicines? I am breastfeeding my baby.

Yes, multivitamins and vitamin d are generally safe in breastfeeding. There is an added advantage of these nutrients reaching the baby through breast milk.
Take it as daily 2000 units before food.
You can.
Supracal hd tablet itself contains calcium, vitamin d3, zinc in itself. So if you want to increase your supplement intake then take vitamin-c tablets alongside supracal hd.
