Stopping all multivitamins or herbal medications 2 weeks prior to surgery
Herbal Medications prior to surgery
All surgeons have different criteria on what their patients can and cannot take prior to surgery. I would ask your surgeon's office about the Vitamin C and Vitamin B supplements. Those are considered herbal medications since they are not regulated by the FDA so it is always better to check with your surgeon directly on their preferences. Good luck with your surgery!
