    I was given this medication for an endoscopy. Because the procedure took some extra time, the dose was continued or repeated at least once. My spouse managed to get me home where I could not be roused for over 6 hours (she was shaking me, putting ice on my neck, speaking loudly, etc.) I have no memory of anything that day and was quite 'fuzzy' for the next few days.

I took him to an en ... Show Full Comment
