Question:
What medication would be injected into the arm as a treatment for branch retinal vein occlusion which could make one vomit within one hour after the injection?

While there are no treatments that are approved for treating branch retinal vein occlusions through injection into the arm, a commonly used test called the fluorescein angiogram, which involves injecting a dye into the arm vein followed by retinal photographs, can produce vomiting after the test.
