Throwing Up Chewble Vitamins!



Recommended Posts

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!

Please let me know what he says. I take the Bariatric Advantage capsules now and I'm no longer sick but it's 6 pills and I only manage to take down 3 pills. Why do our drs hv such different beliefs???? My doc says I can take the capsules

My story is the same with regards to the huge chewable Bariatric Advantage Multivitamins. They were fine preop, but i always throw up when taking these post op. In fact, it happened to me again today. I am now on a Quest to find a Gummy version that is easier on my stomach based upon some good posts in this forum. Never take these! I don't see how these can be on the market. Furthermore, i don't see how surgery doctors can endorse these unless there is some kind of snuggly relationship between bariatric advantage and the doctor. Not that this is wrong, but the product causes so many to get sick. Class action lawsuit anyone? Seriously....

I've gone the gummy route at the suggestion of my doctor's nurse. Not sure how helpful they are but it's better than the nothing I was doing before.

I don't think it's worth the lawsuit but I found out that the reason why it makes us nauseous is it can Irritate the lining where the sutures are for some and for others it's fine

Thanks for the scientific response. It is good that there is a real reason. Still, the product seems flawed if this is true and they are designed for people how have had stomach surgery. Need them to do some R&D to make these chewables better for people like us. Thanks for the tip on vitafusion. I already take their Fiber gummies and would have no problem taking their Gummy multivitamins.

It is good to know I am not the only one who cannot take the Bariatric Advantage. They make me feel sick and I have thrown them up as well. I usually wait till I am hungry at night and take it right before bed. I hate them! I have had them with and without food...still the same! My husband is taking them now and he says they are fine. I am going to look for an alternative because seriously I only take them about once a week because of the nausea. I thought it might go away because right after surgery I couldn't tolerate the Protein shakes very well either. I switched to Almond milk and can do the Protein shake with it!

If anyone has suggestions about a good Multivitamin please let me know.

Those Vitamins were the only thing that made me throw up and my surgery was July 16th.

I take CVS children's chewable multi's. They're animal shaped. My PA looked at the ingredients and said they were good. I also take a sublingual B12, Calcium and D.

If you throw up your chewables - as I did too with those big nasty Bariatric Advantage brand ones you should try these. At our 100 day check up my group was cleared to take capsule Vitamins. This is what they recommend - the NUT's tell us to stay away from the flintstones chewables as even if you double up on the adult dosage they are not a complete form of Vitamin supplementation for bariatric patients (I know doctors are different).

These come with Iron or no Iron - depending on how you take your Calcium - (hubby and I are doing the Citrical petites and the chewables as well.) We tried the iron from Celebrate as well, it is firmer than the Bariatric Advantage brand and they dont go dark and soft as fast. they have a rewards program and you get points for every order - so you can get free and discounted supplements and products as well.

These changed my post surgical life - whew :) No more nausea and vomiting.

The B A Vitamins were making me sooo sick , but I'm a dummy it took a few weeks to figure it out . I take source of life chewable vitamins and split the dose am/pm and feel great . I have even converted my wife who always "encouraged"me to take vitamins pre-op. my 6 month blood work was perfect. They have a women's formula I notice it's low in icalcium and vit d but that is covered with Calcium powder or chewies. Good luck and feel better!

@chimera, thanks for the tip. I ordered the Iron kind from Amazon. With overnight shipping, still less than buying direct. I am already taking capsules and about 3 months out, so should be ok to take these. Looking forward to reliefs from my daily rejection of the B A Multivitamin.< /p>

I just got the Celebrate with Iron in the mail today. The bottle says to take 3 daily, but does this mean 1 with each meal? Also, when should i take my calcium chews? I hears that iron and Calcium cancel each other out, so typically i take the chews an hour after a meal or an hour after taking multivitamin. Should i continue doing this? Yay, i get to throw the BA tablets into the deepest darkest pit i can find and best of all, no more throwing up from the multivitamin.

My doctor said to take Flintstone complete, it has to be complete.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
