How Often Should You Take "Unique E"?

My diet is low enough in PUFA's that I probably don't need much vitamin E, but just from tracking my diet for a few days I'm pretty low in it.  I picked up Unique E vitamin E supplement.  One capsule contains something like 1333% vitamin E.  I'm guessing once a day would be too much, how often would something like this need to be taken to be effective?

The need for Vitamin E is extremely low. You probably don't have to supplement, despite what your diet log says. Even once a month may be overdoing it. Save the pills for an emergeny, like a visit to the chinese buffet.
