Hi, cacirol granules contains vitamin D3 or cholecalciferol and is given for the vitamin D deficiency rickets. I agree with you that the dose you have given is quite high. There are certain signs for overdose like lethargy, vomiting, hypertension and nephrocalcinosis. I suggest you to consult with your paediatrician. Thanks.
