Will I be given antidepressants in the hospital?

It really depends on the type of surgery planned and the type of antidepressant medication. However, your medications are usually continued by the time you leave the hospital. If you’re not able to take anything by mouth after surgery in the hospital, anti-depressant medications are usually held until you can eat/drink. So unless there is a contraindication to resume (ex. Interaction with another med, lab abnormalities, etc) your meds will resume at discharge and possibly while hospitalized depending on your situation (type of surgery, type of medication, no other drug interactions, etc).
