Your doctor needs to know what medicines, over the counter drugs and supplements, and herbal remedies you are taking. Some of these can increase your risk of bleeding. Your doctor will tell you which ones to stop taking, and when to stop them, before surgery.
Some medicines should not be stopped. If you are taking one of these, your doctor will make sure the hospital staff knows so that you get the right medicines before and after surgery.
