  • it should come with paper or instructions on the bottle
    but u take it 30 min before ur appt
    u need to drink it with in 10 min of when u started
    u need to tell the people at the frount desk when u took it so they can take the boold and hour after to drank the orange stuff
    u can only drink water after drinking it and u can not eat untell u have gotten ur blood drawen

  • I'm a lab tech, but each doctor requires you do it differently. I would call them and ask how they want you to do it. I do suggest you get it cold...tastes better going down!
