Anaphylactic/anaphylactoid reactions that may be life-threatening and include shock, hypotension, loss of consciousness, dyspnea, cyanosis, and wheezing. Advanced life support equipment and trained personnel should be readily available.
Local or generalized rash with itching and dermal irritation, headache, malaise, edema of the extremities, and arthralgia have also been reported.

Users are requested to report to GE Healthcare any instances of suspected adverse drug reactions associated with the use of technetium Tc99m medronate.
