GOLD COAST PLASTIC SURGERY, LLC SURGERY MEDICATIONS
Aspirin, aspirin-related products, ALL herbal products and Vitamin E must not be taken during the two weeks prior to and after surgery because they increase bleeding. For this reason, it is very important that contents of any “over the counter preparations” are checked carefully prior to their use. Many headache preparations, cold remedies and “hangover cures” contain ASPIRIN. The chemical name of aspirin is acetylsalicylic acid. These drugs must not be taken during the TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO SURGERY. Examples of drugs containing salicylates are as follows: Acetidine Alka-Seltzer Anacin Anahist APC Aspirin BC Bromo-Quininn Bromo-Seltzer Bufferin Coricin Darvon Compound Diflunisal Disalcid Dristan Ecotrin Empirin Excedrin Inhiston Liquiprin Midol Pepto-Bismol Persistin Salflex Stanback Theracin Trigesic Vitamin E Many arthritis and pain medications have effects on bleeding similar to aspirin. However, the effects are shorter lived. These drugs must be stopped ONE WEEK prior to surgery. The chemical names of the drugs are ibuprofen, indomethacin, naproxyn, tolmetin, and piroxicam. Some of the brand names are: Advil Aleve Anaprox Ansaid Arthrotec Betra Carafelm Celebrex Clinoril Daypro Diclofenac Doldobid Feledene Indocin Lodine Mobic Motrin Naprosyn Nuprin Orudis Ponstel Relafen Sulindac Tolectin Toroadol Vioxx Voltaren Prescription medications should be stopped only with the approval of the physician who prescribed the medication.
