What should I address with a doctor prior to a Colonoscopy?

You should talk with your doctor about any health problems you have and all prescribed and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and supplements you take, including:

 arthritis medicines
 aspirin, or medicines that contain aspirin blood thinners
 diabetes medicines
 nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen
 vitamins that contain iron or iron supplements

To prepare for the colonoscopy, you will need to:

 change your diet for a few days
 clean out your bowel
 arrange for a ride home after the procedure

Your doctor will tell you how long before the procedure you should have nothing by mouth.
