4 hours before your arrival for the colonoscopy, take the 2nd dose of SUPREP. Follow the same steps above; you must be finished in one hour though. Nothing in your mouth 3 hours before you arrive, not even water, gum, or candy.
If you take medications for your blood pressure or your heart in the morning, you are required to take them with a sip of water, at least 3 hours before your arrival on the day of your colonoscopy.
If you take inhalers or any breathing treatments, do not skip them the morning of your colonoscopy. On the morning of your colonoscopy, do not take any other medications unless your doctor told you to.
If you are diabetic, check your blood sugar before you leave the house for your colonoscopy.
If you take blood thinners or diabetic medication, be sure to get specific instructions from the staff about possibly stopping these medications. Each patient is different, so be sure to get your special instructions.
