Customer Question

I'm having a colonoscopy tomorrow and I smoked weed on Saturday, will this effect my procedure at all? I'm worried because I will be sedated and I'm nervous to actually call my doctor and ask.
Thank you.

Hi there

This is Dr. Diego, experienced in Internal medicine, Pulmonary and Critical Care.

I understand your concerns. Usually during a colonoscopy benzodiazepines are used. They do not interact with cannabis. You won't have any problems with sedation. However you need to inform your physician about alcohol and recreational drugs used before the procedure. Let me know if you have any other questions. Please rate my answer.
