Low Dose naltrexone and colonoscopy

Hi everyone,
I am seeking information because I read on this forum regularly about folks getting colonoscopies and taking Low Dose Naltrexone. Does anyone know if LDN needs to be stopped prior to the procedure? I am going in for one on Monday and want to stop if needed.
thank you for any reply,
MJ

No it does not need to be stopped. My son had scopes done in February while on LDN and we did not stop LDN prior to scopes.
Good luck with scopes
