IF you are taking a blood thinner:

You will need to check with your doctor who is prescribing the blood thinner you take to see if it is safe for you to go off of it for the time listed below BEFORE your block and AFTER your block.

You may also refer to the blood thinner letter you were given at your appointment when the nerve block was scheduled.

Do not stop the medication until you have discussed this with and received clearance to do so from your prescribing physician.
