Most medications can be continued as usual. You should inform your physician of all current medications as well as any allergies to medications several days prior to the examination. Be sure to tell your doctor in advance if you take aspirin or anticoagulants (blood thinners). You should alert your doctor if you require antibiotics prior to undergoing dental procedures, since you may need antibiotics prior to sigmoidoscopy as well.
