Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tasty but has FOS I put these in the fridge and as long as I shake them well they taste like regular Ensure mostly. My biggest issue with them is the high amount of FODMAPs, found in the short chain fructo oligosaccharides up high in the list. A lot of people need a low FODMAP diet, and others who eat a regular diet still react badly to them, so putting them in here is a bummer. That explains all the reviews mentioning gas and bloating and diarrhea though, which is exactly what FODMAPs cause. I've had 2 of my 15 bottles and am already experiencing the effects. The competitor's drink like this does not have FOS, so I know they aren't necessary in this type of product, but the other one isn't currently manufactured. But since my doctor trusts these drinks I will trust that the benefits will outweigh the digestive distress.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can neither recommend nor not recommend... Question one signing up asks if I buy for myself or for a loved one... NEITHER! But I have to answer to proceed... I'm currently on day 2 prior to surgery. This product is only available in vanilla, it's definitely not delicious. It's not as bad as CT or MRI contrast or colon preps, but it's not delicious. I add a lot of Nesquik chocolate powder and it almost seems to taste like a Boston cream cake. Every surgery or procedure I've had in the last several years, I've had to stop all meds that thin the blood... Multis, fish oil, Bs, etc, but this product has all of them in it! And two per day. I'm taking it strictly prior to and post surgery. I have no plans of continuing after that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for post surgery recovery! Ortho recommended this as part of his pre and post surgery protocol. I read the reviews - if my health was not at stake I wouldn’t have purchased. Lo and behold, they are tasty! I had the vanilla - it reminded me of the butterscotch instant puddings from the 60s-70s. Very easy to drink, no unpleasant GI symptoms that others spoke of. Gave it 4 Stars because my only complaint is the ortho prescribed 2x daily - that is 660 calories! Calories i don’t need or want to consume. Other than that - i would drink daily as a supplement to healthy diet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good features was given to me before surgery and it is a good product it kept me full during the day but it has a bad taste.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Day one and so far so good I was told by the prescriber to take this for the week prior to my surgery twice a day. I'm only on day one and so far the taste isn't horrible. Its no worse than any other meal replacement drink. The aftertaste is a little bad but i just gargle/drink water and i'm good. So far no nausea or upset stomach. Maybe day two will be different.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ensure surgery Per my doctors orders, I drank two per day for six days leading up to my surgery and for six days after. I’ve never felt so good with regards to energy. I did feel gassy though. Will ask my doctor if it’s something I can continue to drink one a day just for the nutritional value.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I hope the hype is worth it I was prescribed this product by my physician one week prior to surgery. Product was described to improve my healing time. I was all in but day two started with stomach issues!! Swollen stomach, gas, diarrhea and nausea. I hope I can follow through as recommended and the prep for surgery is not a fun ride.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pre-op drink I was given a bag of these to take 3 times a day for 5 days before surgery. No matter the taste, I drank them because I was instructed to and I want the best outcome after surgery. I never found a liking to the stuff and I tried all sorts of add-ins. Worse than the flavor is that the product feels like it just sits in your stomach. I’m bloated, gassy, have diarrhea, and am so very nauseated (think 1st trimester pregnancy). I’ll be glad to be finished and only hope the clear pre-op product I have to take tonight is better than this.
