One of the consultant's roles is to make recommendations regarding the use of medications in the perioperative period. Unfortunately, the data in this area are often insufficient to provide evidence-based recommendations. In this article, we have provided advice considering the pharmacokinetics of the drug, the effect on the primary disease of stopping medications, and the effect of the medication on perioperative risk, including potential drug interactions with anesthetic agents.
