I started my Vitamins when I got home. I take a chewable Multivitamin. I also take Biotin not cause I have to but because I want to it will hopefully help with Hair loss when that happens. I do take a liquid Calcium, I could not chew the large calcium from twin labs, it was terrible. You need 6 of them to get your recommended dose. I also have to take two Omeprazole per day and I take 4 dissolveable tablets of VitaminD because mine was low pre-op

My vsg is scheduled for June 29th. I plan on taking Bariatric Fusion ( 2 a day) for my multi Vitamin and then a sublingual B12 along with that (my surgeon gave me a pre-approved vitamin list). I'm supposed to start them when I get home from the hospital. I also take Biotin because I don't want to lose or have thinning hair.

and the Bariatric Advantage calcium chews (3x/day):

They're not cheap but they're what I'm taking right now. I'll take them up to my 2mo appt and see how my blood work looks.

Thank you all for responding. I made a list if the Vitamins I need. I'm looking into getting the bariatric vitamins, I found them on Amazon.

I was given a list to take asap after surgery. I am taking Biotin & zinc for the hair and its not specifically on the list. I am currently doing a sublingual B12, 2 chewable kids Vitamins & 2 citracal petites. I did the liquid Calcium but it became too sweet and I bought the "petites" citracal thinking I could take them. They are bigger than a plain M&M and I was told to not take anything any bigger than that. I am going to get the chewable flavored calcium that comes in a foil bag when I finish them off. They look like small now or laters. I was told no gummies, period. I was also told to take Iron, but that caused "other" issues :D

I recommend Caltrate chewable in chocolate truffle. They taste very good and it's like a chocolate treat during the day when you can't have candy. ????

They are in a pink bag at your local Walmart. I eat 3-4 a day. Just don't take them with your Iron if you have to take iron. Calcium will absorb the iron and vice versa.
