It is important that you bring all your current medications in their original containers, as well as a printout of your medications from your GP - or pharmacist/chemist - that includes the dosage and how often you take them. This will help your doctors ensure the correct medications are continued for you. Medications include tablets/pills, syrups, ointments, inhalers, injections, herbal remedies, homeopathic and complementary medicines, vitamins and other supplements.
Please check with your surgeon and anaesthetist whether your regular medications and natural remedies should be taken as normal, and be sure to follow their instructions regarding the use of any medications.
