Quadramet contains radioactive agents that provide pain relief to targeted areas where cancer is attacking the bone. You should take certain precautions after receiving an injection to reduce the risk of contaminating others or the environment with radiation. These precautions include: using a regular toilet instead of a urinal, flushing twice after urination, immediately washing clothes and linens if blood or urine touch them, and washing your hands after using the bathroom. Quadramet can temporarily lower your number of white blood cells and platelets, increasing your risk for infection and bleeding. You should avoid people with infections, be careful using a toothbrush so that you don't cut your mouth, be careful when using sharp objects such as a razor and avoid contact sports.
