We have received notification that there is currently a shortage of ‘Autrin’ and  ‘Calcium Citrate D granules’ in the market. Although these vitamins are essential for Bariatric Patients there are alternatives available.

If you are unable to purchase Autrin’ or ‘Calcium Citrate Din store ( @ Clicks or Dischem) then the following alternatives are available to you:

  1. In place of Autrin use Chela-Fer (30 mg strength) x 2 capsules daily (only until Autrin is available again).
  2. In place of Calcium Citrate D use Caltrate Plus, either the chewable or the solid tablets, x 2 tablets daily (only  until there is stock of the Calcium Citrate D again)

 Once stocks of Autrin’ or ‘Calcium Citrate D are available again, please revert back to using them as they are considered to be Premium Products for use by Bariatric Patients.

Kind Regards
