Are you looking for the BariatricPal Store? Go now!

For those who use Patch MD



Recommended Posts

I just received my order yesterday and I'm going to start using these vitamin patches today. I got the Bariatric Pack with the multi, D3 and B12. Plus I also got Glucosamine/Condroitin for my knees. Here's my question........

I was looking on the back of the multi Vitamin pack and noticed that you get over 100% of your D3 and B12 within this vitamin alone. So is it really necessary to take an extra D3 & B12? I don't know what my levels look like as of yet. I have a physical in January where the DR told me he'll do a full lab on me.

I was just curious if I could get away with buying just the multi next month.

Plus, for those who use the glucosamine/condroitin patch, how do you feel it works? And exactly what have you felt a difference on, if anything?

I know this is an older thread but for what it’s worth I only use the multi Vitamin Patch and just had my 6 month labs and all is good!

Hi there! I was initially having trouble getting my chewable vitamins down and discovered Patch MD. I ordered a month supply of the Multivitamin and utilized it for around two weeks. During my next followup with the surgeon, I mentioned that I was using patch MD. She recommended that I switch to a different multivitamin based on what she'd seen on lab work for other patients. I cannot personally speak to the effectiveness because I never had any bloodwork done while using the patch but I have seen several reviews that said that it is effective. I went ahead and switched back to an oral multivitamin at the direction of my doctor (capsule). Just figured I'd pass along what I was told :)

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

        do you set a timer? This is also a hard one or me. During the time between the band removal and sleeve i got back into the habit of drinking with meals..... water, coffee, wine, cocktails.

        I find myself forgetting. In the past months i only threw up twice... so thats good, but i have felt nausea a few times. So now i set a timer on my phone or if im home, i use Alexa.

        What state are you in????

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!
