My reaction before was large hives and then they gave me benadryl and prednisone. Since then, I have developed some asthma, so that has me a little worried. I think it is mostly from the bad air pollution in my town-:)
They had me take 50 mg of prednisone, 100 mg of benadryl and 150 zantac 12 hours before the procedure and then again at 2 hours before the procedure.
Yes, I have had CT scans w/out the contrast dye before. I suspect it comes out better with the dye though.
