Orally administered hypertonic contrast media draw fluid into the intestines which, if severe enough, could result in hypovolemia. In infants and children the occurrence of diarrhea may result in hypovolemia. Plasma fluid loss may be sufficient to cause a shock-like state which, if untreated, could be dangerous. Oral administration of OMNIPAQUE is most often associated with mild, transient diarrhea especially when high concentrations and large volumes are given. Nausea, vomiting, and moderate diarrhea have also been reported. Consult the OMNIPAQUE package insert for the proper dosage and administration when given orally. It should be noted that serious or anaphylactoid reactions that may occur with intravascular iodinated media are possible following administration by other routes.
