Hi
Welcome to HealthcreMagic.

Crystal meth has Methamphetamine which is a CNS stimulant.Once absorbed it stays in blood for 24 hours.There will be interaction between anaesthetic drugs and amphetamine which can cause adverse effects.

And also , if you are under amphetamine effect it is very difficult for your Aneasthetist to calculate the drug dosage and alteration in drugs needed can effect the procedure and also your vitals.Please visit your Anesthetist for details and when to stop amphetamine.

Take care.
