Do I need to stop my meds on the day of colonoscopy? what time shoud i Take my meds on the day of colonoscopy so it does not flush out?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

There's no written-in-stone approach to this; but I'd wait until after your colon cleansing and procedure to take you medications. Worse case is to simply skip the doses on the night before and day of the colonoscopy. A single missed day won't have any significant consequences if your adherence is otherwise very good.

Be well, BY
