I would try a different brand from your doctor's list. Try to keep taking them (maybe with a bit of food) until the new ones arrive. Maybe try one you only have to take one or two of. That's the ones I bought (but I haven't had surgery yet so I haven't taken them yet). I'm sorry they're not working for you.

I am pre-op but got these to start getting into the habit of taking them and I absolutely can't stand them. I tried for several weeks and it got so bad I started gagging every time I took one. I just ordered a bag of the Bariatric Fusion soft chews to try, and I requested a free sample pack from ProCare. Hopefully, I'll find one I can stomach, but I don't blame you one dang bit for wanting to pitch the the BF chewable ones, they are awful! Other folks have also had success with the Patches, but the research on absorbency is a little sketchy. Its hard to know how well they actually work, but definitely worth a shot!

I've been on the Bariatric Advantage chewable with no issues. Only have to take 2 in the morning. I also take their calcium chews and they are like pieces of candy.

I switch to non-chewable next week.

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
