If you have a headache or other aches and pains, you can certainly take Tylenol before you come in, even if you have finished a bowel prep. Make sure only to have a sip of water with the pills. You can also take aspirin, and aspirin like drugs (Naprosyn, Celebrex, Mobicox) as long as your procedure doesn’t include a plan for biopsies to be taken, or a polyp to be removed that you already know about. Take the medications you need; just be sure not to take food or drink within the 6 hours before your procedure.
