Thorne makes a good product (https://www.amazon.com/Thorne-Research-Dispenser-Supplement-Vitamins/dp/B0038NF8MG/) that’s a combination of d3 and mk4. If you just want mk4, they also sell that (https://www.amazon.com/Thorne-Research-Vitamin-Liquid-drop/dp/B000FGWDTK/).

Significant possibility you’re vitamin D deficient. This deficiency is extremely common, literally accessing l affecting the majority of people in developed countries. And vitamin d deficiency causes all your symptoms. I’m assuming you don’t drink much milk, or get a lot of sun?

You can get a blood test to measure your vitamin d levels, but since vitamin d deficiency is so common, you can also just start supplementing, and see if that helps. If that’s the problem, you should notice your symptoms start to improve in 1-2 weeks (although it can take 1-2 months to get back to normal). If you don’t notice any improvement in 2 weeks, you should get a blood test to look for other forms of nutrient deficiency, especially vitamin B12.

One thing to keep in mind: when it comes to supplements, quality makes a huge difference. Most vitamins are made cheaply and have very limited bioavailability, meaning that they aren’t in a form that your body can use effectively. You should get a supplement of 5,000 IU of D3, that is bundled together with some K2. I recommend either the Thorne Research dropper (10 drops per day in the morning), or if drops are annoying, the Sports Research softgels, one per day in the morning. Take with or without food.

Another thing to keep in mind: when you tell people about your symptoms, you will get a lot of people, including doctors, saying that

1) you have depression
2) depression is very normal, especially during the pandemic
3) depression should be treated with antidepressants

1 and 2 are correct, but 3 depends very much on context, and is often wrong. General depression that doesn’t have a clear biological cause (e.g. like nutrient deficiency) should be treated with antidepressants. Severe depression should be treated with antidepressants. But in your case, and in the many cases like yours, you should first investigate what could be causing your depression. Being low in vitamin d, magnesium, iron, ubiquinol, or B12 are common causes of depression, and if you take antidepressants in this case, you’re just masking symptoms when you could be taking supplements and completely resolving the issue.

Finally, I don’t know what other meds you’re on, if any, but stimulants (caffeine, adderall) can reduce nutrient absorption or increase the rate of nutrient metabolism, making deficiency much more likely. For example, the famous “adderall irritability” comes from adderall causing vitamin d deficiency.

I think a better amount of k2 would be 1mg (1000mcg). I am basing this off a couple of vitamin D/K2 supplements that have this ratio.
