    SCI-NURSE Advice please; Will my daily meds throw off my EMG or SSEP?

    Thank you for taking the time to read this. I'm having an EMG and SSEP next week at Mayo and I forgot to ask my Doctor if taking my morning meds would affect the results. My morning meds are Topiramate, Baclofen and Neurontin. Caution says just skip them all, but my prep paperwork says I need to be relaxed for the EMG to work and I don't know how that will work with a migraine (minus topiramate), I don't know if my spasms from lack of baclofen will be beneficial or not for dx purposes.
    Thank you,

    I would call your doctor to see if he wants them held till after your tests. As it depends on what he is looking for.

    Thank you, I know that's the straight forward answer, my doctor just left for vacation and I'm dreading navigating Mayo's message system.
