    Question*~* Did anyone take diet pills prior to surgery?

    Thank you for your response. I have decided not to. I did a search and its not safe basically for the reasons you stated. thanks for your response. Here is something I found online from a doctor: Many diet pills contain additives which make your heart race (IE Ephedrine) or interact with anesthesia. Phentermine has been known to drop your blood pressure during surgery and many of my anesthesia colleagues prefer you were not on it.
  2. Question*~*. Did anyone take an appetite suppressant (diet pill) prior to surgery? My eating has been out of control lately and I was thinking about purchasing something to help. I have about 2 months prior to surgery and would like to lose some weight prior to surgery. Thanks for your responses ahead of time.

    Psych Eval

    Like everyone else said.. a lot of questions on a scan-tron. she asked me questions like, how has weight hindered my life and what will losing weight do for me. it is basically a test to see if you are ready for the life style change, really hindered by being overweight -- but not to depressed about it, if that makes sense. i got the impression that if i were to sad about being overweight that it wasn't a good look.. hope this makes sense
