If I am anxious prior to surgery, can I receive medication for this?

Yes, in most situations you can receive medications prior to surgery to help relieve anxiety. However, in some rare circumstances, this medication may interfere with your anesthesia or surgery and thus cannot be given.  This will be discussed with your anesthesiologist prior to your surgery.
