How do anti-inflammatory drugs effect sleeve patients ?

Good question. There is nothing published in the medical literature on this subject that I could find. See the response to a similar question about immunosupressive drugs after weight loss surgery ().

Here are some questions that you and your doc will need to work out empirically (trial and error) for each drug.

1. What is the best dose?

2. What is the most effective preparation (pill, capsule, liquid, sublingual dissolving)?

3. Are enteric coated or slowly dissolving forms of the drug effective?

4. Does the drug cause gastritis (stomach irritation)?

Some sleeves are much tighter than others by design or by the way the surgery worked out. So drug absorption and side effects may vary from one sleeve patient to another. Finally, your medication needs may change as you lose weight and your sleeve function will change as the sleeve heals. So be ready to reevaluate your medication needs every few months.
