There is no reason we should not take medication in capsule form after RNY. Most capsules are made of gelatin, just like Jello, and dissolve very quickly and easily in the pouch and small intestine.

The one thing I'll add is that if it oil based in a capsule, like Vitamin D2, that won't be absorbed well enough and you'd instead need dry D3. But without knowing what you are referencing specifically, I don't know if my 2 cents helps or not. :)
