Vitamins, the good, the bad and the best



Recommended Posts

Hello,

What are some of your recommendations for Vitamins? My Doctor has a list as long as my arm but I know there have got to be some good combination vitamins out there that we can take that include most, if not all of what we need after surgery. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I'm having my surgery in a few months. I'm at my goal weight for surgery but a few co-workers are either out or about to start maternity leave and I can't leave my boss high and dry to manage my job too......I'd like to use these next few month honing my Vitamin taking skills.

Thanks

Hi . I use a really nasty Multivitamin that only has to be taken once a day and it is what my program requires it is Bariatric Advantage ultrasolo. I also use really yummy calcium chews 500 from bariatric advantage. strawberry flavor is greattt caramel second fave. I have 3 of those a day.

I bought BariSlim Complete. They are chewable and each tablet is about the size of 3 stacked nickels, and you need to take 3 a day. They are disgusting. I ate one and that's all I could choke down. Now I take 2 Kirkland Signature Daily Multivitamins, and supplement them with carbonyl Iron tablets (I am anemic and need extra iron) and liquid calcium citrate, Calcium citrate chews, and calcium citrate tablets. I rotate taking the types of calcium because none of them taste that good. My labs have been good.

See if you can get a sample before you buy anything.

If your insurance will cover Nascobal (RX B12 nasal spray), then Nasobal will mail you all of your other Vitamins (Multi, Iron, Calcium) for free. That's what I've been doing, and it's great!

I started out with Celebrate chewables high ADEK (I had the LOOP DS), Bariatric Fusion Calcium (caramel), Vitamin B1 sublingual, and Bariatric fusion cherry flavored Iron chews. I didn't mind the Celebrate chewable, but the iron and the calcium tasted awful to me. My surgeon recommended ProCare Bariatric Vitamins. They're just one a day and they have everything I need in one capsule, except for calcium, which I now take Citracal tablets. So I only have to take the Procare and Citracal now. It's so much easier! I just had my first labs drawn today, so hopefully the results are good. I highly recommend Procare.

I wanted to do celebrate but the softchew made me sick from their sample bag so i went with forum and nutritionist recommendation of Bariatric Advantage soft chew. I did order other samples but none came in time and the strawberry bariatric advantage was actually tasty

I actually had the Celebrate in a regular chewable (like the texture or Flintstones vitamins), and I didn't mind it, but it's much easier now with ProCare capsules.

My doctor recommends 2 Flinstones Complete (the old formula, which is the same in most generics). They are cheap and taste pretty good. I got the Bariatric Advantage Chewy Bite for Calcium and the Bariatric Advantage sublingual B12.
