Preps & Instructions
Once your colonoscopy procedure is scheduled, your provider will give you specific preparation instructions (preps) on how to prepare for your procedure. These instructions must be followed exactly. Doing so helps ensure a successful examination with accurate results.
In case you’re taking prescribed medicines—especially diabetic and weight loss medications like Ozempic® or Wegovy®—review our special medication instructions carefully. Details are located on each preps page – by tapping prep buttons below.
Failure to follow the prep instructions could result in needing to reschedule your procedure – it is important that you follow the detailed preparation instructions for your upcoming procedure!
