Lopamiro is used to make your internal organs more visible to x-rays. Iopamidol absorbs x-rays, so it allows blood vessels, organs, and other non-bony tissues to appear in x-ray films.
Iopamidol is a contrast agent, which are substances that increase visualization of internal structures of the body when viewed in imaging tests. It is used by doctors to help see your organs for diagnosing diseases and abnormalities.
Iopamidol is a prescription medication and must be used only with doctor’s supervision.
Tell the doctor if you are pregnant before taking Iopamidol.
Iopamidol is an FDA pregnancy category B drug and so not expected to harm unborn babies. However, x-rays can cause severe harm to the fetus. Iopamidol can be expressed in breast milk. Do not breastfeed when you have received Iopamidol.
3 Proper Usage
To use Lopamiro properly, you must follow all instructions given by your doctor.
Iopamidol is injected right before the x-ray imaging procedure.
The doctor will determine the amount of Iopamidol to inject.
Only a doctor or nurse can prepare and give you Iopamidol. Iopamidol is injected into your veins, so you can only have it in the clinic or hospital.
The doctor will tell you to drink plenty of fluids before and after injection of Iopamidol to avoid kidney complications.
Tell your health providers if you experience any symptoms like
swelling during the administration of Iopamidol.
You will be observed for few hours after administration of Iopamidol to check for side effects or unwanted reactions.
Because your health provider will give you Iopamidol, overdosing or missing a dose is highly unlikely.
4 Precautions to Take

The doctor will monitor you for several hours after giving Iopamidol.
Make sure to tell the doctor if you experience any symptoms and maintain open communication at all times.
