Swallowable bariatric vitamins



Recommended Posts

Hey! I was wondering for those who have started taking Vitamin capsules instead of chewable vitamins, how do you take your Calcium? I know you can't take Iron and calcium together so if I get some capsules when should I take the calcium chewable? I will ask my doctor but I want to know what you guys are doing/what's worked with you and your blood tests. Thanks!

I take Calcium pills and a Multivitamin capsule.

My multi has Iron, so I take that with Breakfast and take the calcium later in the day.

I was told to take the Calcium at least 2 hours before or after the mutivitamin. So, I take a Bariatric multivitamin when I get up. I have an alarm set for 9 AM to take two Citracal + D3. Then I take two more Citracal + D3 in the evening before bed.

It seems like a lot of Calcium + D3 to me, but I'm going by the guidance I was given.

I take my multivitamin whenever I wake up (as long as you wake up before 10) and i take my Calcium at 12 and 3. I have a recurring alarm set on my phone for the calcium because if I am out and about I will totally forget it. I take calcium in pill form but I have a few chewable ones in my purse in case I am out and don’t have a drink handy. I had some left over from immediately post op when I used to take them so I just use them for that now.

I use Celebrate Multivitamin with Iron and I take that 30 minutes after Breakfast with my morning meds. Then I take my Celebrate Calcium 3 tablets 2x a day at 2pm and when I take the second dose with my nighttime meds about 2-4 hours after dinner. I have a alarm set for the 2pm one and have a bottle of Calcium at work in my lockable filling cabinet so I don't have to remember to bring it everyday.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
