Before receiving anesthesia, let your doctor know if you are currently using remifentanil. Narcotic pain medications like remifentanil may alter the effects of desflurane, which may reduce the dosage of desflurane required for anesthesia. You should be closely monitored by the surgical staff while you are under anesthesia. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
