Question:
What supplements should I stop taking before surgery?

Answer:
There are a number of supplements and herbs that can interfere with anesthesia or increase the risk of bleeding, cardiovascular events, or other complications during and after surgery. Always tell your doctor and surgeon about the supplements you take; unfortunately, an estimated 70% of patients do not.
