Help! I ran out of Bariatric vits before I got a chance to order them. What would be a good substitute till they arrive?

I just use Centrum (or the generic equivalent)

I've heard that FLINTSTONE Vitamins are good, I tried them after I changed Bariatric DR.'s and that is what they told me. They are so nasty!!! I have always taken Celebrate capsules. No taste, just swallow and go. Centrum chewables are too sweet for me!!

My surgeon recommended Flintstones Complete. I take two a day. The Bariatric Vitamins didnt’t agree with me so I’ve been doing the Flintstones for three months and my test results have been great!

I take myKind Multivitamins, Vitamin D, and B-12. They are all organic, food-based so they absorb really well.

Centrum. Take 2 daily plus an extra 3 k units of D3. Do not take gummies if your less than 3 months post op. Dangerous. And do not take Flintstones Vitamins at all unless you are 5 years old.

I was told not to take gummies *at all*. As in ever...

I've heard the same. Not from my surgeon's office (it's one of the brands they recommended, in fact), but from *a lot* of people on internet forums (who probably heard from their surgeons that they weren't the best option....). I figured I'd play it safe and go with Centrum (which was also recommended by my surgeon, by the way)
