How To Use
  • APPEARANCE: Injectable. Your doctor will prescribe your exact dose and tell you how it will be given.
  • This medicine can be given different ways, depending on what part of your body the doctor needs to see.
  • One way is through a needle or catheter (plastic tube) placed in one of your blood vessels. A nurse or other trained health professional will give you this medicine. You might also receive other medicines before you are given the contrast dye. A caregiver might need to take your blood pressure, temperature, or pulse during the test. Do not move around unless the person doing the test says it is okay.
  • You might need to stay in one position, such as keeping your head up.
  • If you do have to move, move slowly. Ask your health caregiver if you need to drink extra water before or after the test. You might need to stay at the hospital or clinic after the test is done.
  • This will depend on what kind of test you are having.

Side Effects
  • Call your doctor right away if you notice any of these side effects: Allergic reaction: Itching or hives, swelling in your face or hands, swelling or tingling in your mouth or throat, chest tightness, trouble breathing. Chest pain. Fever. Lightheadedness or fainting. Seizure. Severe nausea and vomiting. Skin rash. Slow or uneven heartbeat. Sudden or severe headache. Unusual muscle problems, unusual behavior, changes in vision.

Precautions
  • Make sure your doctor and the person who gives you this medicine know if you have had an allergic reaction to any contrast dye.
  • You might still be able to use this contrast dye, but your caregiver might do things differently.


Drug Interactions
  • Make sure your doctor knows if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you have kidney disease, liver disease, or lung disease. Tell your doctor if you have high blood pressure, blood circulation problems, or congestive heart failure (CHF) or other heart disease.
  • It is also important for your doctor to know if you have anemia or other blood cell problems, including sickle cell disease.
  • Make sure your doctor knows if you have ever had a stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA). Make sure your health caregiver knows if you have diabetes, seizures, thyroid problems, an infection, multiple sclerosis, or pheochromocytoma (a tumor on the adrenal gland).
  • Tell your caregiver if you have cancer, especially if you have multiple myeloma. Tell your doctor and the person who does the test if you are allergic to iodine, or if you have asthma or any type of allergy.
  • This includes hay fever, drug allergy, and food allergy. Make sure any doctor or dentist who treats you knows that you are using this medicine.
  • This medicine may affect the results of certain medical tests. Ask your doctor if you need to call right away if you have pain after the test.
  • For some tests, pain could be a sign of a problem, but for other tests pain is not a concern. The specific test you are having could have its own side effects or risks.
  • Talk with you health caregiver about the test and what you should expect during and after the test.
