Sleevers....What brand multi vitamin are you taking?

Flintstones makes a Bariatric multi?

Also, I think the "bariatric multi" is just another way to capitalize. My Flintstones Multivitamin chewable that I get from Amazon, literally offers every vitamin/nutrient listed in a special bariatric Vitamin.

Perhaps not as much of it by the looks of the labels, but enough for me to reach the (or above the) necessary daily value.

I am taking Bariatric Advantage chewables and not crazy about them

I am taking Celebrate one a day chewable until I start Iron. Then I’m switching to ProCare one a day Tropical with iron and their calcium chews. I wasn’t a fan of ProCare’s berry which I received a sample of first, so I called and requested the tropical which they happily sent. I definitely wanted a one a day. ProCare’s samples are free and they have good customer service.

Calcium Citrate a chewable? Amazon?

What is advantage of chewable over capsules?

I think it’s personal choice. Both are big. chewable doesn’t get stuck, but I’ve taken Tylenol and other capsules with no problem.

My physician’s office (and the other practice I considered) specifically said not to take certain brands of bariatric Vitamins because they don’t have the same nutritional value. Celebrate, Unjury (Opurity), and Bariatric Advantage are well known and they said their patients also had very good levels with ProCare.

I have heard if you don’t opt for a bariatric Vitamin, Flinstones (2 or three.. not sure) are an option.

I don’t “love” the chewable, but it’s not bad. The calcium chews on the other hand are delicious, but I have to wait until 1 month post-op to restart.

The sample packs include both the chewable and capsule so it’s a good way to try both and see if you have a preference. My biggest thing is whichever one I got, it had to be a one a day.

I bought the OPURITY® Bariatric Multivitamin With Iron chewable supplements (90 Day Supply) thinking it would be easier to take, they would be absorbed better ( I am super worried about malabsorption) and I would only need 1 a day. But I wish I had tried them first - the taste is hard to describe - chalk with super tart berries. It’s painful to take even 1. I think I might toss them - I’ve got enough challenges. Trying to chew a multivitamin should not be one of them.
I was told to avoid gummies. I might opt for a pill instead.

Thanks for the heads up. I know to avoid opurity. This is exactly the kind of info I was looking for. Thanks
