Gadoteridol injection solution should be used cautiously by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. It is not known what effect gadoteridol has on a fetus or if it is passed to a nursing infant through breast milk. Children under two years of age should not be administered gadoteridol because studies have not been conducted with this subgroup.

If you have a history of kidney problems, seizures, sickle cell or hemolytic anemia, asthma or allergies, you may be more susceptible to complications. If you have a history of reactions to certain medications, gadoteridol might not be right for you. Tell your doctor about any reactions to medications you have had in the past and about all of the medications, both prescription and over-the-counter, that you are currently taking. If you have acute or chronic renal insufficiency that is severe, you should not take gadoteridol injection solution. There is an increased risk of developing nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF). Additionally, if you are already receiving dialysis, gadoteridol may lead to acute renal failure.
