No. You should take them when they told you to! If you do not take them and you pressure is high they may cancel the procedure and you will have went through the prep for no reason. Follow their instructions.

Yes, you should always take your heart and blood pressure medication prior to having any type of procedure. The only one that you would not take would be a diuretic. It looked like there was an HCT after diovan... Sid you mean Hctz? This is a diuretic, so you would not take it.
Hope this helps. Pup

I am on Metoprolol and was told to take the pill with just a bit of water before I leave for the hospital to get the colonoscopy. If I don't take it, my pulse will be skyhigh.
