Extended Release (psychiatric meds) after RNY



Recommended Posts

I took extended release Xanax before at night and I had to switch to regular because it stopped working. Xanax lasts about 5 hours and now I often wake up around 5 hours after I go to sleep. Sometimes I split the dose between bedtime and when/if I wake up. Over all, it's worked out fine and is a small inconvenience. Whatever you do, I hope you share it with and have a plan with your doctor so you get the support you need.

I’m interested in the responses you get for your question also. I have bipolar and take extended release meds for that. I’m having a sleeve done in Sept. I’m hoping that I don’t have too many issues with malabsorption.

I’m having RNYGB in Oct. saw my psychiatrist the other day, and she said that most of the ER will still work, but sometimes they have to be given twice a day. It just depends on the med and your metabolism. It will be interesting to see what happens with mine too. I’m an NP also, but have never really had to work with gastric bypass pts unfortunately.
