Can One Undergo Colonoscopy After Taking Lithium?
Take a tablet of lasix 20 mg before taking preperation.
Hello Dear patient,
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic for your query.
Have gone through your details and i appreciate your concerns.
See for colonoscopy bowel irrigation is very important other wise the test could not be performed.
As sodium contents of bowel prep are high an easy way is to take a tablet of frusemide(lasix) 20 mg once before taking the preperation.
Its a diuretic and will excrete sodium.Secondly a transient increase in sodium due to single dose of laxative won't cause much problem.
Hope i was helpful.
Feel free to follow up.
