I have and am using them. I just had some blood work done last month (my 3 month labs). Everything was good except for my Iron so now I have to take an extra iron pill. But.....I’ve always struggled with iron so I’m thinking it’s not related to the patch. Like I said, everything else was good.
I could probably take regular pills now but I remember a couple of days after surgery, I tried to take some Tylenol. I cut it in half and omg was the worst feeling ever. It felt like it was just sitting there! So I would definitely recommend the Patches especially in the beginning!

The BariatricPal Store carries PatchAid vitamin patches at https://store.bariatricpal.com/collections/vitamin-patches. They have better nutritionals than the other patch brands.

PatchMD recently updated the supplement amount included in each patch. They're MUCH lower than they previously offered. Do some research and compare nutritional facts on each patch.

PatchAid is manufactured in the same facility as the other Patches that are available and they're less expensive. Visit https://PatchAid.com for more information. You can read over 4000 real customer reviews on PatchAid at https://patchaid.com/pages/real-patchaid-product-reviews-from-real-people.

I've never used the Patches, but I know a lot of people who have (not sure of which brand they use, though). They work very well for some and not so well for others. But you can always try them and see. As long as you're early out and therefore getting labs done fairly frequently, you should be able to tell fairly quickly if they're working for you or not, I would think....

I am now using the Patches and will use them after my surgery as well. As I progress I will most like start taking Vitamins by mouth if I can tolerate them.

I used Multivitamins Patches for 3 weeks after surgery because i was afraid to swallow large pills. After 3wks i started taking regular pills. My labs were OK. My surgeon said it's ok to use patches short time.
