My female friend, who is 28 years old, is on Adderall for ADD and scheduled for hip surgery. Should she stop Adderall before surgery? Is there adverse interaction with anesthesia and Adderall. She had a long-term (eight months) adverse reaction to general anesthesia after surgery on the other hip last year. It appeared to be post-anesthetic cognitive dysfunction. Only recently, she has been able to function more normally. She is concerned about both these issues, and did not get a real answer from her surgeon. Is there any research to help her.
