Chantix and surgery/anesthesia

Chantix and surgery/anesthesia

Postby Sans » Sun May 24, 2009 8:09 am

Hi all. I'm hoping someone will tell me it's o.k. to be on Chantix during surgery. I am scheduled for several procedures including f/l in July. I have a prescription for Chantix but failed to ask doctor or nurse if I can STILL be on it when I go under anesthesia.

Thanks in advance. (I am very worried about this being a contraindication and will quit without Chantix if I must.)

I was on Chantix, before, during and after my surgery....( 3 weeks ago)
I told the surgeon, no problem...but ask yours anyway...

Thanks a bunch Boundless. I appreciate the response. I will call doctor anyway, but glad to hear as the Chantix is working and I will not be smoking before or after this surgery, want to heal as well as I can. Good to read others here have quit for surgery and have remained quit. Double bonus there.

Thanks again, a lot.

You definately can be on Chantix for the surgery. Absolutely no interference whatsoever with the anesthesia, surgery or healing process. Matter of fact, it is PREFERABLE that you stay on it because then you won't smoke! Smoking interferes with the healing process terribly! Not to mention it increases dangers while under anesthesia.
