Should I inform my anaesthesiologist if I am taking any herbal/ natural medication?
Some of these products are very potent and can be dangerous, especially if the anaesthesiologist is unaware that you are taking them. Some herbal medication prolongs the effect of anaesthetics while others may tend to cause bleeding or induce palpitations and high blood pressure.

The use of herbal medication should ideally be stopped 2 weeks pre-operatively. If this is not possible, the product should be taken to hospital in its original packing so that the anaesthesiologist can familiarize himself with the contents of the product.
