Should I bring my medications and/or herbal supplements from home?

For accurate documentation of your medications, it is always helpful to bring your medications and supplements with you to the hospital. It is particularly important to bring any inhaler medications.  Bringing your medications and supplements allows the medical staff to see exactly the medications you take and dosages you require.  We ask that you bring your herbal supplements due to the fact that some supplements can increase the risk of surgery or procedure.
