Patient Education

Medications That May Increase Tendency to Bleed

The list is to give patients and idea of what medications that could possibly cause you to bruise or bleed.  Since there is always a new medication on the market, this list should not be considered complete, but simply a guideline. 

For a two week period prior to and after the scheduled date of your surgery, do not take any medication that contains aspirin or aspirin-related products, such as Ibuprofen (Motrin or Advil) as an ingredient.  These medications have an effect on your blood's ability to clot and could increase your tendency to bleed at the time of surgery and during your post operative period.

Check the labels of all medications and make sure you tell your surgeon and anesthesiologist everything you are taking daily, both prescription and over the counter medication - herbal or dietary supplements. 

Please do NOT stop any prescribed medication without the approval of your physician.

If you need minor pain medication, please take Tylenol (acetaminophen). Tylenol is available without a prescription at your local pharmacy. If you are allergic to Tylenol or unable to take it for some other reason, please notify our surgeon or physician so that a suitable substitute can be given.

 

 

 

Make sure you tell your surgeon / anesthesiologist if you are taking a MAOI Inhibitor!

Discuss with physician - fourteen (14) days prior to surgery. These drugs are used for the treatment of depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, eating disorders, essential hypertension, chronic pain syndromes, and migraine headaches. They work by inhibiting nerve transmissions in brain that may cause depression. MAO inhibitors can cause severe problems when combined with anesthesia, especially general anesthesia. The combination can cause dangerously low blood pressure during surgery.
