Which Medications should I Discontinue Before My Bariatric Surgery?

Would love your thoughts, please comment at the end of the post!

You will have to discontinue self-medications of any kind, such as blood thinners, aspirin, and multivitamins one week prior to your surgery. It is recommended you ask your doctor about any queries related to both prescribed and non-prescribed medications.

Bariatric Surgery is not a short-cut to weight loss. It requires committing to eating and living healthy.
