Rusty Jane

This is a followup on my previous post "Is This Lady Lying?" She said that her eyesight was affected by her Versed injection, so I checked around and came up with this Rusty Jane thing in regard to Versed/Midazolam. Link; Urban Dictionary: midazolam (see #3.) I hadn't heard of this particular side effect of Versed/Midazolam. Yet another problem with the drug that the medical community has swept under the rug.

Here's #3. for those who don't want to click the link.

"Slang term for the drug Midazolam, a potent, fast acting benzodiazepine used for acute pain relief, before medical procedures, and in some cases terminal sedation in cancer patients. The term Rusty Jane comes from the drug's ability to sometimes cause mild inter-ocular bleeding, causing the patient to see everything in a pink or red hue."

You can even buy Rusty Jane coffee mugs and other gift items. Most peculiar indeed!

As for the above quote, look at the other claims! "...acute pain relief,..." Really? Versed/Midazolam is NOT a pain med, regardless of what medical people say. This person also claims that Versed is used for killing patients as in "terminal sedation in cancer patients." Yet another off label use for this horrid drug! We saw this in the Katrina fiasco and in Michael Jackson's death didn't we?

I am leaping to conclusions here and saying that this post is probably a medical person who joyously uses Versed to render his/her patients helpless. The remarks about Versed being a "pain medication" as put forth by medical workers, and the use of Versed in "terminal" patients is provable. Now to find empirical evidence that Versed causes "mild" bleeding into the eye. I'm thinking that this will be a well kept secret, and/or medical workers who see this will attribute it to something other than Versed.

So the lady in my previous post wasn't kidding when she said that Versed messed with her eyesight.
