Routine Medications

If your child takes any medications or supplements on a regular basis, be sure to let your healthcare team know before the tonsil and adenoid surgery. It’s a good idea to write down the names of all the medications and supplements. List the exact name, dosage, and number of times a day each medication and supplement is taken. On the day of the procedure, take the list with you to the medical facility.

Ask your healthcare provider if your child should take any medications or supplements on the evening before the procedure or on the day of the procedure.
