Just wondering. Are taking time released medications an issue with the sleeve? I know it can be with other WLS options.

There are NOT any meds that we can not take with the sleeve. That is what makes it such a great choice for most people that take medications.
Also, my PPI is time released.

That's good info to know, I never thought about it. I have a time release med I have to take. Thanks for asking Gigi and thanks Kelly for answering!
