Reviews for Dotarem to treat CNS Magnetic Resonance Imaging

"I was briefly on Dotarem, merely the amount of time it took to get an MRI with IV contrast to compare with the MRI without contrast dye. 2-3 days after the MRIs, I experienced pain across my abdomen (just below my diaphragm) that radiated to my back on both sides. But what I found more concerning, and I did not see this side effect mentioned in this article, was blood in my urine. It didn’t look outrageously bad in the toilet bowl, but in the specimen bottle, I could not believe how dark it was. I don’t know if anyone else has had this side effect. But I felt I should mention it because I had never had any issues with my kidneys nor is there any history of this kind of problem in my family."
