what vitamins do you take?



Recommended Posts

I was hoping I could just pick something up at Wal-Mart instead of the expensive bariatric Vitamins. Thoughts?

I thought I was done with these at age 10 but my doctor told me to use Flintstone's complete chewables.

I take Critical Calcium citrate 3x daily, Vitamin B12 in the am and a men's Multivitamin 3x daily

I started with the bariatric Vitamins but they tasted awful. I also take fish oil for my cholesterol.

There are as many answers as there are doctors, I suppose. My nutritionist specifically said no to Flintstones - she wants us to use bariatric Vitamins. I use a Gummy Vitamin from costco along with a B12 complex. My 2-month bloodworm was perfect.

You'll get a lot of varied answers for this. My doctor has no brand or type requirements, just take what she asks, in the mg she asks. :)

For the Multivitamin, I do Centrum Flavor Burst adult chews - they are basically Skittles - 2 per day. Also daily I take: 2 Fiber chews, 1 B-12 dot (under the tongue pill), 2 500 mg of L-Carnitine and 2 calcium chews. I accidentally bought Calcium carbonate, but the doc told me to finish those and then switch to calcium citrate. The L-Carnitine is the most expensive, but still not bad at all. I also take a prescription weekly Vitamin D, but it's maybe $8 per month.

I take Celebrate multi-complete chewable Forest berry flavor. I take one in the morning and one in the evening. They taste good. My nutritionist does not want us taking Gummy Vitamins and said that the bariatric Vitamins are better for you especially in the beginning.

I also take a sublingual B-12, and an Iron supplement Ferrous Fumarate and B-1 along with a Biotin capsule. I do not take Calcium citrate supplements due to a history of kidney stones. I am having my lab work done next week before I see my surgeon for my 3 month post-op visit.

I'm 6 week post-op as of today and will meet this afternoon for that appointment however in "my book", it states that today I will start Pre-Natal vitamens along with Calcium and continue the B-12 sublingual...I have been doing the Flinestone Complete chewables since before surgery. My question is, which Calcium product is the best?

Thank you,

      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.
