Well my friend I'm sorry they don't work for you but they sure as hell work for many other people. Maybe you didn't take fishoil at the right dose, or the right kind, or long enough. Or, maybe it just won't ever have a noticeable effect on the way you feel. I had a very noticeable lift in mood and energy the first week I took fish oil. I was taking Zoloft at the time so fish oil was like an adjunct. This effect is no placebo bro, you just did not happen to benefit from it the way you wanted to. Remember, things like fish oil are not supposed to be a monotherapy, they are usually considered to work best with other treatments/medications.
You're right that D3 is the most commonly sold form. You're wrong that D2 is no longer used in milk, it is. I was probably wrong by saying that D2 is more commonly used in milk. I think this was the case in the past but milk producers have wised up and are using D3 more often than before.
If you go to a reputable store where you can buy reputable brands, you will get healthy natural vitamins/supplements. That is up to you to do your research.
Taking 2000 iu of D3 during the winter time is not a bad idea and it will not harm you, especially if you get your D levels checked at the doctor.
