Throwing Up Chewble Vitamins!



Recommended Posts

They said something about not breaking down well. They aren't in your smaller stomach long enough to break them down

I just spent over a hundred bucks on Bariatric Advantage Calcium, and Celebrate Multivitamin. I can't stand either of them. I always take Multivitamins with milk but I can't handle celebrate cherry. Yak. Back to the drawing board, wish I would have read this thread first!

I'm 10 days postop and just started back on Vitamins. I'm taking the opurity Vitamins made by the powders?utm_source=BariatricPal&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=CommentLink" target="_ad" data-id="1" >unjury ppl. No throwing up (so far) although I had to bite it into three pieces and chomp it down. My stomach is gurgling a little but that might be because I also started full liquids today and was drinking a Protein shake.

You might try TJ adult high potency chewable Vitamin or flintstone chewable Vitamin. Both BA and Celebrate made me throw up. Good success with TJ tabs after switching to them in month 3. Labs were really good at six month. Almost ready for 9 month labs in a few weeks.

Hey Amanda I have been taking those also without any problem, but they are to freaking huge so when I finish them I am going back to the Centrum chewables they are much smaller.

Once I run out I may switch just due to the cost.

I also take the opurity multis - they are gargantuan! My doc said absolutely no gummies, and no Flintstones. They are actually not allowed to endorse anyone company or give samples, so I was dependent on a friend of mine for advice. I have the Wellesse liquid Calcium for now (tastes like creamsicle!) and when I'm done with that, Calcet chewables. Not sure what to do when I run out of the Opurity though. They are huge and expensive.

My Nut said that we can do the Centrum Chewables and I bought some of those from Walmart and they are less expensive than the Opurity.

Ok...so I wound up getting sick from the monster opurity multis, so I switched over to Flintstone completes with my dietician's blessing - just have to take 2. They said definitely no gummies - when I go back for my follow up I'll find out why. Liquid Wellesse Calcium plus D, liquid Wellesse B-12 until I run out of it. It was a sample that has 60 doses in it. I might buy it again - it's really not bad at all.

The opurity multi makes me nauseous each time...I switched to Flintstone complete , but when I compared the Vitamin intake, I think I will crush the opurity and put it in my Water...lol

The thought of having to take chewable vitamins made my pre-sleeve stomach turn... I can't imagine having to take them on my new tiny tummy...

I have been taking the Bariatric Advantage capsules and they go down so nice and easy. The serving size is six capsules so I divide it up into three two capsule servings and take them with my meals. By taking them with meals and taking smaller doses more frequently, you are less likely to feel nauseated from them.. also the capsules are nice and small and slippery- smaller than my omeprazole capsule. A 90 day supply was $40.00 from Amazon.com

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

      2. Arabesque

        My dietician thinks it may be the regulatory hormones too & that my liver & gall could be having a freak out from the weight loss. It may be causing my low BP too. Hopefully the abdominal ultra sound will show something when I get the results.
        My maternal grandmother had issues which developed in her 70s but she’s the only one. No heart probs, no cholesterol worries in any one else (incl 13 aunts & uncles & my parents) - cancer seems to be our worry - sad face. And they still live into the 80s & 90s.
        Just strange that for 53 yrs my levels have been normal & 6months of weight loss & it’s now high.
        Don’t know about eating ostrich though that could just be burying my head in the sand - tee hee hee.

        PS - My menopausal symptoms are still MRI. Even with a 42.5 degree day (108F) last Friday not a twinge of a hot flush. Best non scale victory ever. Guess you win some hormonal battles but lose others.

        PPS - Wrapping Christmas presents with air con cranked up today even though it’s only 33C. Ho ho ho

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.
