Collation of Versed Stories

Somebody from "free ideas" went to all the trouble to collate a bunch of blurbs about Versed from all over the web. I hope that the owner doesn't suffer from one of the peculiar side effects of Versed; Obsession. I hope she is just curious...

Free Ideas!!!: Sometimes Patients ARE Conscious on Versed (Midazolam)!

Free Ideas!!!: Patients Are Sometimes Given Versed (Midazolam) Even When They Refuse It

Free Ideas!!!: Long Post - Versed (Midazolam) for Gastroscopy

These compilations nix the "idea" that Versed is wonderful and we all just love it. WE have airline pilots, CRNA's, pharmacists, nurses and other high functioning individuals telling their horror stories about Versed. It's nice to have these posts in one place. Thanks "Free Ideas."

  1. I am going for a wisdom tooth extraction tomorrow. 1 tooth, horizontally impacted. It has to be cut and drilled out since it's so tight.

    The Dr. is advising conscious sedation with Versed and Brevital. I asked about doing it non-sedated and he said that it was close to a nerve and thought it would be safer to do it sedated since I won't move around as much.

    My questions are, what are my alternatives to Versed. Can the Brevital be used by itself and does it have any of the side effects of Versed? Would using just Brevital require a higher dosage and risk going too deep in anesthesia and cause breathing problems?

    What about just using NO and opiates. Or how about an oral or IV valium. Would IV valium have the same effect as Versed?

    Looking for other options, surgery is tomorrow at 10:00 a.m.!
