Drugs to be stopped before anaesthesia

TIME PERIOD TO STOP CERTAIN DRUGS BEFORE SURGERY 

Lithium: stop 2 days before surgery (Remember the alphabet 'L' is formed by 2straight lines)

MAO-A irreversible inhibitors: 3 weeks (Remember, turn 'M'clockwise,
you get something like '3'; Alternatively MAO has 3 letters)

Estrogen pills: 4 weeks ( 'E' is formed by 4 straight lines)
