What if I choose to take medication for claustrophobia or anxiety?

Many patients choose to take medication to help them through the MRI exam. There is nothing wrong with this method and we support your decision to do this. MRI does NOT keep medication at our facilities so this is something you will need to arrange before your appointment. You will need to contact the provider ordering your MRI for medication. Simply let them know you are claustrophobic or anxious about your exam and they can call a script into your pharmacy of choice. IMPORTANT NOTE: DO NOT TAKE your medication until you arrive for the MRI and the technologist has told you to do so. We need to ensure you are properly screened and that we are running on time before you take the medication. If you have any questions please call our departments.
