How to take your supplements?

In the beginning you may need some time to get used to taking your supplements. We have a step-by-step guide and tips for you, to help you get started.

Set a moment to start with your supplements

Your stomach may still be a bit sensitive after the operation. We therefore advise you to only start with your supplements hen eating solid food goes well. Discuss with your doctor or specialist when you can best start taking your supplements.

The intake of your capsule or chewable
  • Take 1 capsule or chewable daily
  • It is best to take your capsule or chewable 1 or 2 hours after breakfast or lunch.
  • You can take your capsule with water or other sugar-free drinks.
  • You can chew or suck your chewable tablet. With your chewable you receive a iron tablet (Ferro Optimum or Ferro Forte). Take this tablet with a glass of water.
Do you use calcium supplements or dairy products?

I use a WLS Capsule: make sure there is at least 2 hours between the intake of your calcium supplement or dairy product and your WLS capsule.

I use a Ferro Forte or Ferro Optimum supplement: make sure there is at least 2 hours between the intake of your calcium supplement or dairy product and your Ferro Forte or Ferro Optimum tablet.

I use a WLS chewable: your chewable can be taken at the same time as your calcium supplement or dairy product. Only the iron tablet (as mentioned above) needs to be taken apart from calcium and/or dairy.
