Iohexol Disease Interactions

There are 2 disease interactions with iohexol:

Moderate

Iodinated contrast agents (applies to iohexol) myasthenia gravis

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility.

The administration of iodinated contrast media may aggravate the symptoms of myasthenia gravis. Caution is advised when using these agents in patients with this condition.

Moderate

Iodinated contrast media (applies to iohexol) asthma/allergies

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility.

Iodinated contrast media such as ioversol, can cause life-threatening or fatal hypersensitivity reactions including anaphylaxis and anaphylactic shock. Manifestations include respiratory arrest, laryngospasm, bronchospasm, angioedema, and shock. Most severe reactions develop shortly after the start of the injection (e.g. within 1 to 3 minutes), but delayed reactions may occur. There is an increased risk in patients with a history of a previous reaction to contrast agent, and known allergies (i.e., bronchial asthma, drug, or food allergies), and other hypersensitivities. Caution is advised on these patients. Premedication with antihistamines or corticosteroids to avoid or minimize possible allergic reactions may reduce both their incidence and severity.

Moderate Moderately clinically significant. Usually avoid combinations; use it only under special circumstances.
Minor Minimally clinically significant. Minimize risk; assess risk and consider an alternative drug, take steps to circumvent the interaction risk and/or institute a monitoring plan.
Unknown No interaction information available.
