I am fairly new to this board and thank you for being here.   My question....Is there a web-site or something that will tell my what vitamins and minerals we can take at the same time.  Before meals after meals, morning evening ect ect. I tried googling for info but I don't have the topic down small enough to do me any good Like many others I take multiple vitamins and minerals throughout the day and want to make sure I am doing them right.

I don't know of any website with this information - as you know, WLS people are in a category of their own with the complexity of vit/min supplements. There is some variation with specific vitamin preparations - but let's try & keep it simple. Your multivitamin should be taken with food Your iron & calcium should not be taken together Vitamin C helps with the absorption of iron Any caffeine or the caffeine-like compounds in tea will reduce iron absorption dramatically (if you drink coffee in the morning - don't take your iron then!) That should get you started.  If you have more specific questions, let me know. regards, Danielle Halewijn RD eNutritioncare.com

Thank you!  That answers the main ??? I had and I have been doing things right (thank goodness) I try to spread it all out during the day.   I do a multi with breakfast and lunch along with my potassium. I also do Vit C at brkfst Biotin and zinc with afternoon snack. Flax seed oil and Fish oil  with evening snack. Calcium after supper and at bedtime. Yes my Nut.... Surgeon ....and PCP have recommended the different supplements and they all know about what I take. Again Thank you
