Should I take my medicines the day of my stress test?
Yes you should take your regularly scheduled meds the day of the test. There are 2 EXCEPTIONS: 1. Because you are fasting you need to AVOID taking your diabetic meds. However you should bring your diabetic meds to the test. There will be a time during the test when you are able to eat and you will need the diabetic medicine at that point. 2. If you are doing a treadmill stress test we need to increase your heart rate for an accurate test. You should hold your beta-blocker (metoprolol, atenolol, coreg) the evening before and the morning of the test.
