Can you take xanax before a hida scan?
Will this interact with the cck or anything else - like pain medicine does?

Thanks!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Xanax does not affect HIDA scan and it can be taken, it can rather help with anxiety during the work up.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
