“This stuff tastes really bad. However, it contains the proper vitamin D for Bariatric patients. Whereas the Centrum chewables has the wrong Vitamin D for post-op patients. ”

“If you're recently post-op and can only use liquid vitamins, I'd recommend this, despite the metallic taste. It has 100% of the RDA for B12 and 20% of the RDA for Zinc.”

“I prefer this over chewables or crushing. It doesn't taste too great but what liquid vitamin or medication does. It is easy to swallow. Take right after a meal or before hand and this will help with the flavor :)”

“Easy to get down. Easy to find and buy. Not bad tasting like the chewables that were so dry. Sure beats chewing and taking pills.”

“I thought for sure the FDA would have issues with Centrum selling VOMIT in a bottle, but I guess not. This stuff is the most vile tasting liquid I have ever put in my mouth. Actually, the flavor was akin to the taste in one's mouth after one hucks....pre-wls. I took it back and got my money back. Yuck!”

“The 3rd ingredient was alcohol. As a new post op, I used it for about 2 weeks and found the alcohol burned all the way down. I stopped and went to something else. I don't think alcohol is good for the tummy. Especially being a newby.”

“Centrium liquid vitamins are easy to take and don't leave a chalky taste in your mouth like the children's vitamins. The taste isn't great, but it only takes a second to swallow.”

“If you can stomach the lingering after taste I suppose it can help provide you with the nutritional needs. I quickly switched to a multivitamin pill that was very small and works just as well.”
