Customer Question

I take .25 mg of altorpopalm(xanax) twice a day anxiety and need to prep 1 1/2 days for a colonostopy. Can I still take them.
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?
Customer: Never know when I feel an attack coming on but if I take 1 in AM and 1 before bed it helps. Just need to know about during the prep as it already making me very anxious.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No

Thank you for your question,

I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.

You can take your xanax night before colonoscopy.

But please inform your doctor so that they know about the medicine & can make suitable adjustment if they use any sedation before the procedure.

I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
