A single sedative is used called midazolam. It is a member of the benzodiazepine group of drugs and is the main agent recommended for use in intravenous sedation in the UK. Midazolam is well suited for intravenous sedation as it brings about a general state of relaxation. The recovery period is smooth and quite short. You will feel very drowsy and may drift off, but IV sedation doesn’t put you into a deep sleep as general anaesthesia does.
Other treatments may be available using single drug IV Sedation techniques
