liquid diet before exam
Jan 14, 2014

I have to be on a liquid diet for two days for my colonoscopy. Some of my meds need to be taken with food. What should I do?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Liquid diet should safely substitute for solid food in most situations. In the worst case, you could hold (all of) your medications, but that generally isn't required.

I'd suggest speaking to your pharmacist about your particular situation and medications.

Be well, BY

Can I switch from Truvada/nevirapine to Atripla
PEP Side effects, reversible?
