In brief: Yes

You can typically continue to take your daily medications prior to colonoscopy.
Blood thinners and diabetic meds may need to be altered. However, the doctor performing the procedure should give you instructions prior to the procedure; especially regarding medication changes. When in doubt, call their office and ask.

In brief: Should be fine

Ear drops for either ear infection or for ear wax, should not have any effect on one's colonoscopy.
The drops may be used as directed by one's doctor.
