Nausea with Multi-vitamin



Recommended Posts

Hi! I was sleeved on 9/9/13 and have been instructed by MD to take a chewable Multivitamin daily. I am getting terrible nausea :wacko: out 10 minutes after I chew the vitamin-to the point that I am almost vomiting. I am curious as to what everyone else is taking or any recommendations. I have always had a sensative stomach to Vitamins but would like to find one that I can handle. Thanks!!!!

I was required to take two chewable Multivitamins and chewable Calcium a day. The first week they made me nauseous and felt like sandpaper going down. By the middle of the second week I was throwing them up within minutes of chewing them. I even tried crushing them and that didn't work either. So I switched to multivites gummies and haven't thrown up since.

i had this also and was unable to take them for weeks. my NUT said that with the shakes she wasnt in any hurry. That it was better in the evening after a meal--perhaps, i did not notice that. however after the third or fourth week I got Celebrate capsules and I tolerated them much better. by the fifth week i have no problem whatsoever.

good luck

Im taking Centrum Silver chewable (even though Im not "Silver") and they seem to be fine. After the bottle is over though - I will go back to gummies which I took before surgery.

Thanks everyone! My Protein Shake also has Vitamins so I may hold off on the chewable for a bit. The nausea is really setting me back in the evenings.

I used to have issues with some Vitamins, At my NUT's suggestion I took Flintstones Multi and started taking them before bed and it didn't' bother me as much.

The one and only time I have vomited post-op (5 months) was when I took my multivitamin on an empty stomach.

Yeah I loved my gummies but was told to not use them after surgery and the chewable ones make me sick no matter what. I have tried all kinds. Thinking about having to take them makes my stomach turn! Having a full stomach is helping the most. I still have a vague nausea for a bit after but without food they come right back up. Other than eating a meal then taking them I have no solution. I just went back to my gummies after a month figured it is better than not taking them at all.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
