What to Expect During and After IV Sedation

To prepare for IV sedation, you should arrive in comfortable clothing and avoid eating or drinking for six to eight hours before the procedure. You will also need a responsible driver to bring you to the appointment and pick you up. Once we put the IV in your hand, you should start to feel relaxed. Any other medications you need will be administered through your IV.

After your procedure, you might still feel drowsy for a few hours. Avoid strenuous activity, alcohol, or operating heavy machinery for the next 24 hours.
