In brief: Simple procedure

Technically speaking, there is no medication you should take before a bone marrow biopsy.
It is a simple procedure and done in your doctor's office. However, sometimes, in certain circumstance, a medication like pain medication or anti anxiety etc are requested by a patient. Thus, the best thing is for you to talk to your doctor and tell your doctor if you need to take something. Best of luck.

In brief: Maybe

This procedure is usually done under local anaesthesia.
Some people may need a sedative, analgesic, or anti-anxiety medication. The best thing to do would be to speak with the doctor several days prior to the procedure to let your wishes be known.
