Adcal D3 contains both calcium and vitamin D. The vitamin D is low dose and you can take this daily . D3 5000 has high dose of vitamin d3 ( 5000 instead of 800). It doesn't have calcium (please check the ingredients as there are different preparations). It is normally taken once or twice weekly. If taken daily, it is only for 3 months to correct deficiency.
