Biopsies and Antihistamines

My girl friend is going for a biopsy to determine more about her IC condition. Does she need to stop taking her antihistamines before the procedure and if so how long before?

Hi there!

Though no absolutely necessary, discontinuing the medication a week before the test would be advisable if this can be well tolerated by the patient. I would suggest discussing if this would be required in her case with the treating urologist.
Hope the information is helpful.

Take care!
