The vitamins combined with the shakes are designed to give you 100-150% of the RDA recommended nutrients per day. Since it's a very low calorie diet it is essential that you are dieting wisely and getting in all your caloric and nutritional needs. Taking the vitamin daily ensures that. But I agree, please check with your clinic nurse and see if there is a different type of supplement that you can take. All are different so it's important that you communicate with your staff before using your own. good luck!
