I’m about 3 weeks post op and have been trying to find a good multivitamin. I tried a liquid kind but it caused diarrhea almost immediately. I also tried the Bariatric Advantage chewable multivitamin but it causes vomiting within a couple minutes of taking it, even when I try just taking half.

I’m on to regular foods now and haven’t had a negative reaction to any type of food that I’ve tried so it seems strange that I’m having a reaction to the Vitamins.

Has anyone else had this happen and what ended up working for you?

Gosh. Sorry for your struggle! Do you take them after eating? Or before your meal or on an empty stomach? I take mine after eating a meal.

I was using Celebrate Capsules and now I'm doing Celebrate powder Vitamin you mix with Water (tastes like Tang)!!

I also use Celebrate Watermelon calcium chews.

I usually take them about an hour after eating, maybe right after eating would be better.

The Vitamin powder also sounds interesting, it might be better since it’s more diluted.

I seriously dilute mine with Water to 1/2 strength. I mix a scoop in my water bottle and then pour 1/3 into a glass and mix with water. I have to do that 3 times to use it all up and that's 1 serving. I have to have 2 of them per day. So I'm basically drinking Vitamins all day. LOL. But it's good and tastes like Tang. They also have raspberry lemonade which is good and wild cherry which a lot of people like.

I am pre-op gastric bypass, so bear with me on this, but I’m curious how it really goes with taking the Multi Vitamins when you’re only on a liquid diet. Currently I take Vitamins, but I ALWAYS have to have solid food in my stomach first or else I’m probably going to throw it up. Is it somehow different after the surgery?

I haven't tried a lot of others. I couldn't stand the taste of BariMelts chewables and hated the generic multi chewable. Celebrate has been my salvation and I've just never had an issue. This powder has the Calcium already in it for my 2 doses. So then I only have to add 1 Celebrate watermelon chewy and an Iron. Their iron (tangerine) is so yummy! And the watermelon chewy tastes like candy (Starburst). I take them with Protein Drink right now and don't have any nausea issues with them. But there are times when I'm taking them on "no food" in my tum, since I'm sipping all day. But so far so good. :)

I normally suggest patients that have this issue to take it at the end of their meal, together with food. If you use a capsule, you can also empty it into your food. I'd be willing to offer your money back in full if you try BariatricPal Multivitamin ONE capsules and still have these issues 🙂

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
