How Do I Prepare for My Upper Endoscopy?

Before your upper endoscopy, you will need to prepare for the procedure:

  • A few days before your procedure, your doctor may ask you to avoid certain medications and, in some cases, adjust any daily medications you may take.

  • You will need to stop eating and drinking several hours before your procedure starts. Your doctor or other health professional will advise you on when you will need to stop eating and drinking.

  • Please talk with your health professional about instructions regarding your medications, eating and drinking, and other important information in preparing for your procedure.
