Left vitamins at home



Recommended Posts

So, I'm taking the Bariatric Fusion Vitamins - you take 4 a day, at least 2 hours apart. While I usually space them throughout the day, my NUT said it was OK to take 2 together. So, here's my dilemma - I ran out of vitamins at work, so I took one this AM, then 2 when I got home at 9PM. I won't be awake at 11. I can't decide if I go ahead and take another around 10 to get my 4 in today, or assume its too much too close together so the last med won't absorb? Any advice? thanks!

PS - already packed a week's worth of vitamins to take to work tomorrow so this won't happen again.

Thanks. That was my first inclination. I’m just trying to make sure I follow instructions.

It takes several months to develop a deficiency of any significance. It's good to be dedicated to your regime, but the reality is that it's okay to miss out on several days and still be perfectly fine. Just don't take more than recommended amounts later to make up for your missed days. (Not that I thought you would.😃)

Taking two Multivitamins at once is fine. The important thing is to space out your Iron (if taken separately) so there are no absorption issues. Calcium inhibits the absorption of iron. What Vitamins do you take specifically? Just a Multivitamin? (Wait. I see that you are a sleeve patient. Never mind. You don't have the same nutritional risks.)

I take Bariatric Fusion. They’re all-in with iron so I only need to remember to take one type
Of Vitamin.
