Bariatric Fusion Vitamins Q



Recommended Posts

As part of my pre-op requirements for my surgery (I’m having the Sleeve in August 27th) my nutritionist requires that I purchase bariatric Vitamins (have my vitamins) at least two weeks prior to surgery. I did that and opted for Bariatric Fusion. I just realized that the dosage is one Vitamin 4 times a day. Woah. That seems like a lot! I’m going to do my best to remember to take all 4 every day but does anyone know of a chewable that’s only once or twice a day? Thanks!

I have the Bariatric Advantage now, which is two per day. The Bariatric Fusion tastes much better though. Unfortunately I just could not find the Bariatric fusion chewable without Iron, or I would still be taking them.

My doctor’s recommendation is to have a multivitamin with Iron (at least 40-60 mg a day). I wish I didn’t need it either because of the constipation

My nutritionist had given a few choices of chewable bariatric brands or doubling the adult dose of regular Multi Vitamins with Iron. I tried the Bariatric Fusion, bariatric pal, Centrum adult and finally Flintstones with iron. The fusion were just too often and too big, the bariatric pal had this chalkyness that made me gag, the centrum were ok but still a lot to do two at once so I had to split the dose and the Flintstones were just right.

I started on the ones with Iron, but the constipation was unreal and my surgeon’s office gave me permission to try to go without. They will check labs at the end of the month. Fingers crossed to be able to stay off! Like the person said above, I have heard lots of good reports on Flintstones Vitamins.
