Can Omeprazole be taken before a colonoscopy?

Is it dangerous to take omeprazole two nights before a colonoscopy

Brief Answer:
no problem

Detailed Answer:

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

There is no problem if you take omeprazole 2 days prior to colonoscopy. It is not dangerous.

It is no way related to cause problem in the colonoscopy procedure nor interpretation. For your reflux you may continue taking omeprazole(with sips of water) on the day of colonoscopy and later also.

Hope I have answered your query. If any further queries are there I would love to help.
