no, don't take the probiotics the night before or the morning of....take it after the scope. It would/could possibly change the readings of the biopsies.
Best to have it in the raw I would think.
You'd also just be wasting them since the prep is a purgative...to clean out everything.
If you're wanting, take them right after your scope.
I've never done the c-scope without any meds, but I'm awake throughout the process to watch the monitor. Worth the prep..lol.
What prep are you doing? the gallon?
Hope it goes well...keep us posted.
