I am currently taking three 1mg Xanax per day & I am very tolerant to them. I have chronic pain issues & am on a few opioid meds also. Will this one pill really help the MRI experience better for my pain & anxiety???
I am prescribed a 1mg Ativan for an MRI tomorrow. Will this help me?

I have been doing extensive research on the contrast agents that they are using in MRI's that all contain gaddinium, which has new evidence posted by the FDA to trigger a deadly disease called, Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis. Studies have shown that patient with any form of kidney disease, from mild to severe, are more susceptible to the disease with exposure to this contrast agent in an MRI. The FDA has issued a public health advisory. Check it out--you may ask for no contrast.
