I use the fusion tablets - easy to remember, chewable and the berry ones are tasty!

I also use their sublingual vitamin B12.

i also use the fusion. Like only having to remember to just them and not other supplements. I order from Nashua Nutrition where I also get the Bariatic Advantage shake mix. That makes it easy to go over the $99 for free shipping if i am to lazy to drive to Nashua. I Have tried most of the fusion flavors and I use 2 pill cases (morning and night) and I vary the flavors by day so I do not OD on one. :D

I was wondering if you can use gummy vitamins. Centrum Siver has a gummy multivt but I am wondering if they can clog up your pouch.

I have not used gummy vitamins but I have used gummy Melatonin for sleeping and have not had an issue but of course I am taking that just before bed so it has all night to disappear ;)

I think you need to be careful with gummy vitamins for a couple of reasons. First, how much sugar is in the vitamin? Most gummies have quite a bit of sugar added, so read the label to find out. Second, does it have *all* of the vitamins we need? Some gummies are missing certain minerals like selenium and copper (to name a few). In the short term, it may not be a big deal. However, if it's your vitamin of choice, be careful. You may need to supplement whatever you're missing in order to make sure you don't end up with deficiencies.

Good luck!

I am looking to switch frocmthe Bariatric fusion to the CVS Spectravite performance tablets. The only problem is that CVS does not have anything with that name anymore. I do not have the specs on what the Performance USP had for percentages so I have nothing to compare against the options that are currently available. I have to assume that CVS still produces them but that they are called something else these days. Does anyone take the CVS brand and if so which one do you use.

Thanks in advance
