You will need to discuss directly with your doctor and make the decision together weighing risks and benefits. Holding medication 12 hours prior to the procedure and restarting immediately after may have less risk for vomitting and aspiration, but may make you more comfortable as far as PD symptoms. There are a lot of ways to do this and everyone needs to be on board with risks and benefits. I try to always keep some medicine on board if it is an awake procedure as that may make the procedure go smoother, but it may also impart some risk. Detailed discussions are important.
