Question:
Should I stop taking Hytrin before my cataract surgery?

Answer:
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.
