You are getting a medicine Acitrom 2 mg that is a drug to prevent thrombosis, therefore it causes incresed bleeding tendency which may account for small clots. Levepsy and eptoin both are antiepileptics to prevent seizure.
Answering to your quarry, Yes medicines are correct but Acitrom as I said is given to prevent XXXXXXX venous thrombosis. Ask your obesity surgeon how long it is to be given in your case. Levepsy and eptoin both are antiepileptics to prevent seizure and if you have history of seizure they should be given for 3 yrs. If there is no history of seizure use is controversial but if started may be stopped within an year.
Let me know if you have any other query.
