PATIENTS

  • If you stay overnight and bring your home medications, you might be able to continue taking them while in the hospital. LOH allows patients admitted to the hospital to use their own medications pending approval from the surgeon or hospitalist providing medical management. Using your own medications can save you money, so please do not forget to bring them!
  • On the day of surgery, please bring all of your home medications in their original, labeled containers. All prescription medication containers have information on the label, including your name, the name of the medication, dosage, and instructions on how often to take it. For your safety, medications in unlabeled containers and/or in containers other than the original will not be used while you are in the hospital. For example, medications in pill organizers will not be used.
  • LOH does not have an outpatient pharmacy, which means that we cannot fill prescriptions (e.g., discharge prescriptions). However, for your convenience, we have compiled a list of local retail pharmacies that can accommodate your outpatient pharmacy needs:

  • Medications such as phentermine, a popular weight loss drug, may need to be discontinued two weeks before surgery to avoid a possible life-threatening interaction with anesthesia. If you are taking phentermine, please talk to your surgeon about when to stop this medication.
