I'm sorry to hear of your health problems. That's a huge thing to deal with.

A first step may be to go the the manufacture's web site. Perscription drug companies are now required to keep the FDA required labeling info. on it -- and are held to higher standards than the PDR regarding updates.

I wouldn't trust anyone's opinion but an anesthesiologist's. Can you get your GP to call one for a quick consult? Surgeon's don't keep up on meds.

I'm sure others here will be more helpful. I hope all goes well for you!

> I have been on Parnate off and on for years. I always go back to it, as it seems to be the only AD that truely helps. Last year I had a hysterectomy and my GYN. freaked and made me stay off of it for 2 weeks prior to surgery.
> I am having a 3 level fusion Tuesday, with plates and screws. My surgeon DID not tell me to stop taking it this time. He acted like it was no big deal. I told him absolutely no demerol and he wrote that on my chart, along with check for all adverse medication. He said as long as the anesthesiologist knew i was taking it, it would be fine. Now I am getting scared. I haven't had one since the 9th of May. Does anyone know if morphine is ok? I know i will be using the "pump" in the hospital. You guys here are so knowledgeable here, and i appreciate your feedback. What will they use???
> Thank you in advance,
