Should I stop taking Hytrin before my cataract surgery?

No, most ophthalmologists and anesthesiologists advise not stopping blood pressure medications for cataract surgery. We advise our patients to take these medications the morning of surgery with a small sip of water. I suggest that you consult your ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.) to explore this topic more fully.
