Throwing Up Chewble Vitamins!



Recommended Posts

I took Centrum chewables until about 7 months out and then I switched to Centrum pills. I'm pretty sensitive to Iron and will vomit because of that, so I always have something small right before I take my Vitamins. Usually it's a mini babybel cheese for me. That seems to be just enough to keep me from getting sick while still leaving enough room in my sleeve for my morning meds.

I saw this thread and just had to ask. Has anyone had the same reaction to the Celebrate Vitamins? I am 1 week post op and my NUT just recommended I start my Vitamin regimen with Celebrate Vitamins. Well I just took 2 multi and couldn't get to the bathroom fast enough to throw up. It was awful!

The ones I took were samples I received from the company. They don't taste great and I can see myself wanting to gag every time I try to take them. I really don't want to spend all that money on a 30 day supply if they are going to make me sick every time I take them...

I don't know what to do?!?!?

You are not alone! I spend almost $75 on the one month supply of chewable Multivitamins, Iron, Calcium and B12 and feel like it was a total waste of money. I am amost four weeks out and the MV and Calcium pills make me ill (then again almost everything required by my surgeon does at this point! :) ) so I am no longer taking them. I have a follow-up on 8/29 where this will all be discussed with my doc. He is going to have to supply an alternative so I can get started on a Vitamin regiment.

What is so funny is once upon a time I was known for my cast Iron stomach - NOTHING ever bothered me! Now, everything does!

I was just about to post that I chewed up my first Vitamin from Bariatric Advantage and threw up within 30 seconds! I have to call my doctor tomorrow.

I went to CVS and both the Women's One A Day gummies. I take 4 a day and then calcium chews I bought from Bariatric Advantage. I hope that is good enough. Hey it's better than nothing right?

Regarding the Celebrate I just started taking them a few days ago. I'm living in the Middle East and there are no chewable Bariatric supplements here so I ordered a 90 day supply online. The first few days they made me like rush to the sink because I need to vomit sick. It was over as fast as it happened though.

I spent a lot of money on them and honestly I'm getting desperate to find something I can take. So, I read more carefully and on the multi-vits it says to take one in the am and one in the pm (I only take the mv and Calcium plus). No wonder I was sick.

Today I tried seperating them more and I wasn't sick. Sure I was chewing on Vitamins 1/2 the day but at least I didn't get sick. I also personally don't find the taste bad at all. I have the strawberry pineapple multi and strawberrycreme calcium.

I have this problem too. I switched to Centrum chewable and it really helped. I have also heard of people having better luck with flintstone's chewables, but I never ended up trying those since Centrum worked for me.

I think it was just the super high values of Vitamins all at once kinda overloaded my system.

HOLY COW! I'm glad I stumbled on this! I thought there was something weird gouing on. I was taking the Orange flavored ones pre-op just fine, but post-op they make me feel naseuas for 10 minutes after taking them. I assumed I was already tired of the flavor, and switched to the tropical ones. So, far those haven't affected me yet, but man, I loathe those orange ones now. And I have a HUGE bottle of them at home. BLECK! :(

I am having the same trouble with the Celebrate Multi-Vitamin chewables. They make me gag - in food, before food, after food, chewed quickly, sucked as candy, dissolved. Ech. I am getting so frustrated. My doctor insists on chewable or liquid FOR LIFE. I see him in a couple of weeks and I'm going to beg for mercy and see if he'll let me take the celebrate dissolvable capsule at 8 weeks. ;)

Ditto for me with the Bariatric Advantage! I am 4 weeks out and they are the only thing that has made me sick (about 1 minute later everytime). I finally just bought some Fintstones and had no issues. Thank goodness I didn't stock up on them!

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.
