Hi Deidre

Since there are so many supplements on the market, it's difficult for me to list all. Rather let me know what your are taking and we can evaluate from there.

All the best!

just leave them all out for 24 hours before. that''s safest because you don''t know what meds they''ll give you in theatre that could interact with certain supplements. Most importantly things like gingko biloba which can accelerate bleeding.
