Do you think the Patches for the Vitamins needed are ok to take or do you recommend pills.

Thank you I guess I will have both and just see what works best. I was getting the Patches for the first month don't know how well I will do with chewable.

Good to hear I don't remember to always take pills and don't care for them. Can you tell me what brand of patch you went with if you don't mind.

Thank you

I think capsules are preferred over pills/tablets. I take a calcium citrate capsule and the Bariatric Pal multi vit with Iron that is also a capsule. My D3 and B-12 are small tablets that I suck and sort of dissolve in my mouth before swallowing.

I was swallowing capsules from day two. Once they removed the drip on day 2 all my pain meds were given to me to take orally. It was difficult for the first couple of days because I had a lot of swelling. I was ok by day 4. My Vitamins were in capsule form & I just spread out when I took my meds throughout the day so I wasn’t swallowing several in one go. (The Multi Vitamins used to make me very nauseous & I’d often ‘vomit’ - not fun.) We’re all different & some struggle to swallow tablets for some time. It will be trial & error to find what method works for you.

I don't think I started Vitamins until week 2.
