Hello and thank you for the question.

There are couple of reasons not to drink alcohol when you have colonoscopy ordered. When there's a need for colonoscopy; there?s a problem with your gut. And alcohol can cause more dehydration and more inflammation of the gut.

When it comes to colonoscopy prep; drinking alcohol could possibly interfere with the sedation process. Any anesthesiologist would tell you not drink because of alcohol-drug interaction with anesthesia that could possibly have you end up with coma, worst case scenario.

Please, let me know if you have more questions.
