Anyone else need a Hype-man for taking vitamins?

Recommended Posts

I have to hype myself up to swallow my Vitamins. I use a pill cutter for the big boy because I loath throwing up, and if that beast gets stuck, I know I will.

I have to take an additional 265mg of thiamine because I was deficient prior to surgery.

My urine smells like vitamins. It is gross. And I can only assume my sweat will to when I get the go ahead to exercise.

Yesterday I think I experienced “the foamies” people talk about on here after I took my vitamins. It lasted like an hour. I finally ate a sugar free pudding in an attempt to weigh down the foamies. It either worked or enough time had passed.

Yep, same. I space mine out over 30min to an hour, longer if they start to bother me, and I never take them on an empty stomach. That seems to help a good bit. I have the Vitamin pee thing, too, but I haven't noticed it in my sweat. I don't love it, but its just one of those things that comes along with WLS.
