I'm really bad about taking my vitamins...
I'm 12 months out from RNY and I've lost 100lbs. But I'm really bad about taking my vitamins... Are there any long term effects anyone can attest to from not taking vitamins? My surgeon says I can just take a multivitamin and I don't have to do the bariatric onces anymore, but I just forget to take them. — Christina I. (posted on August 16, 2012)

try sipping on vitamin water. They really are needed. I became so anemic that I had to take iron infusions. Try getting a pill case and make taking them part of your morning or evening routine. They really are important.

I have to set an alarm to remind me to take mine - and yes it is extremely important to take them as you are no longer getting the same nutrients from your foods that you once did. My daughter had bypass about 10yrs ago and she also became anemic from not always taking her vitamins and protein shakes. She now uses kids chewables because she had trouble taking regular vitamins.
