I've had 3 colonoscopies, while on meds.  Each time, I was told to take my meds on prep day.  On procedure day, I waited until after.

I do have one med that requires food, but I take that one in the morning, so it was hours before I started my prep. 

Of course, missing a day (assuming you are otherwise adherent) isn't going to be a big deal anyway.

If memory serves...

Procedure was early morning. I take meds at dinner (need food), so I couldn’t take them, as I was fasting. I discussed with my doc and decided to take them with the first meal after procedure (early lunch) and then continued with my usual schedule (dinner). So basically, I ended up talking 2 doses with just a 9/10h interval.

This was more than 1 year ago, since then I read  already several times here on Poz that many others do not consider 1 skipped dose once/twice a year a big deal, as long as overall adherence is +95%. So, next time I think I will consider this option, after discussing with my Doc.

Good luck with colonoscopy! When I did it they lightly sedated me so I basically slept throughout the whole procedure.

Hugs

We are all dealing with this. And we will live long and productive lives!! AND, yes the Lord is my shepherd. Life is good... And thanks for the meds!

I did everything the same, but took meds later after the procedure. Everything was fine.
