If you are just going to be under local, I agree that 2 days is probably adequate, and I would not re-start for 2-5 days but go by your physicians instructions.
Stopping all questionable meds 1-2 weeks before surgery is common sense

hi,I tell my patients to stop taking phentermine at least 1 week prior to surgery. Phentermine is a stimulant which can make anesthesia more difficult.
