Just wondering if everyone takes specific "bariatric vitamins" or do you use regular over the counter Vitamins? And what's the best Calcium to take?

Actually, after talking to a few VSG patients (from different surgeons) I've noticed that different doctors require their patients to have different Vitamin regiments.

What do YOU take?

I was told to take Flintstone w/ Iron then calcium citrate which I got from bariatric pal its the bariatric advance chews. I have been looking into Tespo its a machine kinda like a Keurig machine that will make you a shot of Vitamins daily. They have a bariatric pod two shot glasses of drink a day one in morning and one at night and that it. Rather then taking a ton of pills. But I'm the worst at taking pills so I think it would be more beneficial for me to go the Tespo route.

I take specific bariatric Vitamins. Bariatric Advantage brand Multivitamin, Vitamin B12, and calcium chews. They might be more expensive, but I feel it's worth it, and my surgeon recommends this brand.

Just go to supermarket or chemist whichever has the best deal. I use 2 different Multivitamin either Centrum or Swisse; there's no rule that says you have to use specific bariatric brands...

I look for whatever is on sale but also which has got most Vitamins for the price...

You have to take Multivitamins everyday for life so it does add up

I am required to take ProCare Health Bariatric Multivitamins with Iron. Also, calcium citrate with D3. I tried Bariatric Fusion but it lacks Vitamin K.

I was told Flintstones were only okay for the first 6 weeks. Then I had a specific requirements for my multi Vitamin. I take Bariatric Pal One. When I bought a year supply it broke down to only $9 a month.

I've taken Centrum (or the generic equivalent) since day 1. Walgreens and CVS both have generics. I took the chewable version for the first few months, then switched over to a regular tablet.

for Calcium, I take a couple of different versions. When at home I either take generic tablets or mix some Upcal D powder into my yogurt (for my Breakfast dosage). I always have Bariatric Advantage chews with me for when I'm out & about and it's time for my calcium (I take one of the other versions when I'm at home because they're cheaper - but BA chews are great for when you're away from home or traveling)

I take a Prenatal Vitamin on recommendation of my hospital Dietician. Only time I didn't was right after surgery when they told me to crush everything, well the chewable I had weren't as nice as Alex Brecher at Bariatric Pal Store has, in fact they were VILE, as soon as I could get the Okay I went back to my prenatal caplet, can't beat Once a Day in my book. And $99 sounds high, until you add up how much Over- the- Counter costs monthly. Sounds like he has Bariatricians formulating his, and I can testify his delivery is quite quick, my orders came no longer than a few days, even over the weekend, to Ohio.
