Hello doctor,

I suppose to get the sleeve bariatric surgery and I was taking Adepix and I stopped it a week ago. My surgeon told me he thinks I have to be off Adepix for three months before surgery. I only took it for three weeks. Is this true? He said it may interfere with anesthesia?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern about your health condition and possible issues related to Adepix.

Adipex is Phentermine which is Noradrenaline and Serotonin reuptake inhibitor which causes high blood pressure and an increase in heart rate in association with anesthetic medicines. But as per the literature and evidence, stoppage of medicine one week before surgery is usually recommended. So I do not think it should be a problem during surgery.
