For a scheduled esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), there are many guidelines that you need to follow to ensure your safety during the procedure.

Please do not take aspirin, ibuprofen, Coumadin, Plavix, Celebrex or any other blood thinner 5-7 days beforehand, but before you stop taking your prescribed medication, please check with your doctor first. If you take blood pressure or cardiac medication, you may take it the morning of your procedure.

The day before the procedure, please do not eat or drink after midnight.
