Can anyone tell me please that if you are having an endoscopy do you have to stop taking any medication for a few days in advance?

I'm really bad with anxiety and was told that I would have to stop taking any medication before they would do an endoscopy. I'm worried that if I am sent for one I wouldn't cope for that long without medication as I'm struggling as it is trying to withdraw from my anti depressant. :shrug:

Call your doctor! They will tell you what to do. Explain your situation and your worries.

I'm sure it's just blood thinning medication they ask you to stop, defo ask your gp.
