Thursday, March 22, 2018 at 12:00 PM ET / 9:00 AM PT

About 200,000 Americans have bariatric surgery each year.

This month's TRC Hot Topic webinar features an expert panel discussion about how to monitor and adjust medications following weight loss surgery. Listen as Lingtak-Neander Chan, PharmD, BCNSP, FACN, and other panelists discuss the long-term outcomes with bariatric surgery and answer common clinical questions, including:

  • What are dosage forms that result in erratic absorption?
  • Which contraceptives are preferred?
  • Can patients take NSAIDs or other meds that irritate the GI tract?
  • Do doses of warfarin or other anticoagulants need to be adjusted?
  • Are vitamins and supplements needed long-term?
  • Are patients at risk for alcohol or substance abuse after bariatric surgery?
