Tespo Vitamin dispenser



Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried the Tespo Vitamin dispenser? Its liquid vitamins. I get really tired with Vitamins and I feel like this might help me absorb them.

Anyone else get tired too? It's a drugged up feeling even. I take at night now because I'm unable to function if I take during the day

Yes, I bought my Tespo dispenser about 4 months ago and I love it! We even bought the men's Vitamin pack for my husband so he's switched the way he takes his Vitamins. It's so easy and is gentle on my pouch. I couldn't take pills because they would hurt my stomach and make me nauseous. I totally recommend the Tespo!

Did you check with your surgeon and/or nutritionist? Mine wouldn’t let me do the Patches, and part of the issue was that the Vitamins were dispensed once a day instead of throughout the day, and some (such as calcium) can’t be absorbed in one sitting. Once a month sounds far too good to be true.

I have been unable to take Vitamins in the pill or chewable forms...I never could hold them down and quit trying. I got my Tespo 2-weeks ago and I love it. I’m finally able to take my vitamins. It has a orange citrus flavor that reminds me of tang only not nearly as sweet.

Its daily not once a month.

I've been using it for several months now, I take my Vitamins twice a day and my blood work came out perfect according to my Dr.

So you have to take two of the bariatric formula ones a day? With that are you using more than a months supply in 30 days?

      I'm struggling a little. My younger sister wants to go out to a buffet for Thanksgiving so no one has to cook and stress. While I appreciate her sentiment, I also don't want to pay $65 a head (4 ppl in my family) especially since I can't eat much AND buffets are so difficult to deal with overeating. I told my sister after thinking about it that buffets aren't okay for me. She seemed to understand, but was disappointed. Am I being selfish by not going along with the plan? I purchased a turkey to cook and I can make sides that are bariatric friendly. Sigh, this one is bothering me. I might be emotionally low right now because my dog passed away recently and that is contributing to my thinking.

        Sorry about your pup. That's a real grief you need to allow yourself to express.

        So $65 for each person is hefty. We couldn't afford that for TG for 4. But buffets don't freak me. I wouldn't even pay--just sneak a bite or two off a plate here or there. No biggie. But doing a restaurant or keeping food simple is also what works for most.

        Sorry you're having a tough time about the upcoming holiday. Remember, our joy will mostly be with being with those we love.

        So sorry about the dog. It is so hard when they pass.

        Yes, that $65 is super steep. You'd really be paying $260 for 3 people to eat and you to watch. Yikes! And I'm sure they wouldn't let you in without paying. Maybe just beg your sis to put it off until next year when you might be able to enjoy it too? I mean, honestly, you've already got the darn turkey. You're still a work in progress and you sure don't want to throw up in the restaurant. Maybe thinking about it that way will help your sister understand. By next Thanksgiving, you'll be far more sure of what you can handle and what you can't.

        Good luck.

      One Week Post Op today! I feel great and almost walking back to normal. I have learned in this short week to not drink your dinner protein shake at a constant sipping. I spent 30 min the last two nights trying to release the pressure in my chest. Lesson Learned! I am back down to Surgery Date Weight as of this morning, actually half a pound less. Now to look forward to actual losses LOL. I guess i had a lot of gas and liquids that are taking time to leave my body. Its all good, it will be gone eventually! I have no regrets, and take each day as it comes and look forward to the next stage next Thursday, and getting my stitches out on Tuesday.
