What medications should I stop taking prior to my procedure?
Please stop taking all prescribed blood thinning medications as directed by the physician who prescribed your blood thinning medications. We will notify them of your scheduled procedure and ask that they give you directions on when to stop taking your blood thinning medication, and when to resume the blood thinner after the procedure performed.
Please take all regularly prescribed medications you take daily as you normally do except for prescribed blood thinners. Aspirin, ibuprofen and other NSAIDs will be stopped depending on the procedure performed. The scheduling staff will discuss instructions with you at the time of scheduling your appointments regarding aspirin, ibuprofen and other NSAIDs.
