    Dr Crouch said that for photosensitizing medication only a couple of days beforehand. After the treatment he felt it didn't matter as long as it isn't in the bloodstream during the treatment it will be fine.

    Things like grape seed extract should be stopped about 10 days pre/post treatment.
