Before receiving AdreView you should know about the radioactivity of this medication. AdreView contains iobenguane I-123, which is a radioactive substance, so proper precautions should be taken before using it. It's important to review your medical history with your doctor because certain medications and medical conditions may interact with AdreView. It's also very important to drink extra fluids before and after receiving AdreView so that the radioactive substance does not harm your bladder. Tell your doctor if you're unable to urinate or if you are dehydrated before receiving AdreView. It may also harm your thyroid, so your healthcare provider should give you a thyroid blocking medication at the same time as AdreView to make sure you're protected. This drug should not be given during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. Talk to your doctor if you have questions about the possible risks associated with AdreView.
