Experiences with barium sulfate?
I'm having an MRI and they told me i will be having to drink barium. Now I've heard some pretty horrific stories with this stuff and its scaring me and causing me lots of anxiety. Its also bad because i have problems chugging things down, it makes me nauseous. If you guys have any tips or experiences please share!:) thanks:)

Hi there!

Barium studies are not as scary as they seem. Just try to swallow the barium in small quantities and avoid gulping it down and forget about the bad taste. It would not take more than a few minutes and the entire procedure would be done in ½ to 3-4 hours depending on what the doctors are trying to look at. Let us know how it goes.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
