Triple bypass surgery
Jun 22, 2012
I am taking Complera and have bypass surgery scheduled in 3 days. Do I take my medication on the day of surgery? What about high fat meal and NPI?
Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting.
Usually, it's ok to take pills on surgical days, but since Complera requires a meal for dosing, it's not a good idea to take the day of surgery.
You could consider taking your medication the night before with a meal (making sure that the meal occurs before the doctors want you fasting).
I hope that helps and good luck with the surgery. BY
