I didn't have gastric, but I have been looking into the same thing as I don't think I am getting enough from food intake. I am looking into the liquid vitamins and Patches now.

I had to switch to chewable Flintstones because regular Multi Vitamins make me very nauseous.

I just take two Centrum Silvers (or the generic equivalent) every day. I also have to take B12, B1, D, Calcium, and Iron in separate pills on top of that since we need more of those than are in standard Multivitamins (at least gastric bypass patients do). It could be that the bariatric specific multivitamins include most/all of the extra we need - but I'm not sure. I've never take bariatric specific ones.

Are you able to cut them? Maybe you could cut it in half and take it twice a day to help you tolerate them?

I just take ALIVE Gummy one-a-day Vitamins and separately Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Iron, and Calcium pills. I have the RX B12 nasal spray. I don't know if I am doing enough but I will find out in another 2 1/2 months when I do lab work again.

(I also take Biotin and collagen pills for my hair, even though there is a lot of debate on whether that actually works with Hair loss. I read it helps with regrowth, so I will continue to take it - even though I haven't experienced the dreaded hair loss yet).

I take Flinstones chewable 2 per day. I had bought bariatric45 90 day supply and I cant tolerate them at this point. I am hoping that may change later on.

I take 1 Bariatric Complete Multivitamin and 2 Celebrate Multivitamins (without Iron for the Celebrate) a day. And 2 calcium citrate from Bariatric Advantage (my Calcium was high last test so I cut back to 2, I was taking 3). The Celebrate multi's are the easiest on my stomach.

I've been taking BariatricPal Multivitamin ONE capsules for six months. I've had my blood work done twice and everything is fine. I've had no problem tolerating the capsule. Also, BariatricPal's Multivitamin annual subscription (four bottles) costs much lower than most other bariatric Multivitamins.
