No problem: These meds do not need to be stopped when getting Propofol.

Sorry, but this is: not my area of expertise. I'm sure the gastroenterologist who is doing the procedure will be able to answer your question. Ask him/her when you go for your pre-procedure visit or call the office. Peace and good health.
