Can I stop Prozac (fluoxetine) a few days before major surgery? I'm worried that withdrawal may affect general anesthesia or cause problems during the operation.
No reason to stop: It makes sense to keep taking medications that your system is already used to taking. Stopping Prozac (fluoxetine) might increase your anxiety, which isn't helpful when you're facing major surgery. If you need to be on a clear liquid diet prior to surgery, it still should be ok to take your medicines with a sip if water. However, stopping Prozac (fluoxetine) does not affect general anesthesia in any significant way. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

Will the accuracy of mapping of the heart be compromised if general anesthesia is used during mapping for a pediatric atrial ablation?
Sister is 15. She got general anesthesia instead of local anesthetic during an upper GI endoscopy. It was 9 am and she got it through gas and iv. Why?
Sedation: Most if not all patients require some sedation for endoscopies. Usually this is accomplished by medication through an iv. Some patients, usually children, do not want an IV while they are awake, so an anesthesiologist can use gas to sedate the patient and then place an iv. The rest of the sedation will be done via the iv. Local anesthetic alone is not usually effective. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
