2. When to stop taking medications

If you take medicines for diabetes, it is okay to keep taking them up until the day of the procedure. You should stop taking any other medications the day before an angiogram. Patients who are on blood thinners should not stop taking medication. Your doctor will discuss which medications you may have to keep taking before the day of your procedure. It is important to talk to your doctor about any medications, supplements, or over-the-counter drugs you are taking before you have an angiogram. This ensures the procedure will go on without a hitch.
