Depends: Depends on cause of the cirrhosis and how severe it is. Many, many drugs are metabolized in the liver; some should not be used by people with cirrhosis, others can be used but need to be at lower dose and taken less often.

Perhaps: Some physicians prefer that you hold blood thinners, such as aspirin, coumadin, warfarin, plavix, aggrenox, & others, or if you take Mestinon (pyridostigmine) for myasthenia gravis, you should check with the office several days ahead of your appointment to be certain.
