I am soon to be given a general anaesthetic for a minor operation. During the pre operation assessment I told the nurse that I was taking Mucuna Pruriens together with Sinemet for my Parkinson's. She referred it to the anaethisist who said it was contraindicated to the anaesthetic used and that I must stop taking it 14 days before the operation. Obviously I will, but has anyone else heard of this?
