Anesthesia and C/L

Recommended Posts

Mark,

When you go for procedures where some level of anesthesia will be administered,  are the anesthetic dosages  reduced to reflect the influence of a PWP C/L load? 

I would think that you'd get less- they tell you not to drink on it for heavens sake, let alone Benzo's....

I take 1600mg of C/L a day:   2- 10/100  6xd

                                                     1/2 of 50/200  Cr at 6am

                                                     1/2 of 50/200  Cr at 3pm

                                                      1- 50-200 CR at bed.

Thanks,

Waywrd1

Waywrd,

I have had many procedures where I have had to be placed under anesthesia, not once has the dose of anesthesia had to be adjusted. I know this because I asked the same question. People with Parkinson's are in a special group of people that are told to continue their medication therapy right up to the hour that anesthesia is needed. This is due to the fact that the repercussions of a patient with Parkinson's not taken their medication greatly outweighs the incidence of any issue with the medication in the system. Now I am talking specific PD medications. The Dr may have you stop taking fringe medications such as antianxiety, pain, other types of medication of this type.

I hope this helps and please keep me posted.
