Who should not use mannitol IV?

You should not use mannitol IV if you have severe lung congestion or fluid retention. You also should not use it if you have severe dehydration or damage to your urinary system that has caused you to stop urinating. Kidney damage, heart failure, or lung congestion that gets worse after taking mannitol IV might mean you have to stop using this drug. Anyone experiencing bleeding in the brain, outside of a surgical procedure, should not be using mannitol. Anyone with a known allergy to the ingredients in mannitol IV should not take the drug. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, talk to your doctor before getting mannitol IV.
