Customer Question

I'm having a tummy tuck on the 8th and I accidentally took my Phendimetrazine this morning, so I am wondering if I go under general anesthesia on the 8th, if I'm in danger

Hi and thank you for your question. Phendimetrazine should be stopped several days prior to surgery due to its interaction with halogenated anesthetics. If you are taking the immediate release formulation, the medication should be out of your system within a day or less. If you take the extended release formulation, about 3 days for the medication to be out of your system. So either formulation you take, having surgery on the 8th should be ok.
