Preparing for Your EEG
Follow these tips for a successful EEG test:
- Do not stop taking any medications unless you are specifically asked to do so by your doctor.
- Avoid fasting the night before or the day of the test. Low blood sugar may influence the result.
- Do not consume caffeine for 8-12 hours before the test.
- Be sure to have clean, dry hair. Don’t apply styling products such as hair spray and hair gels or leave-in hair products.
