Juvederm injections for lips
The medicines you're taking ( Ranitidine, Loratadine and the inhaler) have no effect on the lip injection procedure. The medicines to avoid are those that increase the risk of bleeding and bruising. These include Aspirin, Aspirin-containing products (such a Anacin, Excedrin and Alka Selzer), Advil, Aleve, Plavix, Eliquis, Coumadin, etc. If you have a history of cold sores on your lips, it would be advisable to take an antiviral medication such as Valtrex or Famvir to prevent the appearance of cold sores after your treatment. Good luck with your treatment.
Prior to lip injections with Juvederm
The only medications you should not take prior to lip injections are blood thinners such as Aspirin, Warfarin, or Coumadin. If you are on these medications regularly, check with your primary physician or hematologist to make sure you are medically cleared to hold these meds. The reason for not taking any blood thinners prior to your lip injections is due to the increased risk of bleeding and bruising. Otherwise, the medications you are currently on are fine to take up until your procedure.
Medications to stop before Lip augmentation with Juvederm Ultra XC or Juvederm Ultra plus XC
The medications you are taking ( Pro Air, Ranitidine, Loratadine) should not interfere with lip augmentation with Juvederm. We recommend holding use of blood thinning medications like Aspirin, Ibuprofen and Omega 3's (Fish Oil) and Glucosamine Chondroitin as well as Alcohol to minimize bruising.

All three medications are absolutely safe to continue taking before your Juvederm injection. None of them will interfere with the injection process or the Juvederm itself.

Medications to avoid before injections
I typically provide a list of medications to avoid prior to any injection or surgical procedure. The items you show are not on that list. You want to avoid anything that can thin the blood, such as aspirin, alcohol, and fish oils. Of course, during you consultation with a plastic surgeon, your specific medications can be discussed. I wish you the best!
