After knee replacement surgery I awoke with dizziness & acute vomiting from this drug. After going home, I experienced 8 severe migraine headaches in a 2-month period. Since I suffer with drug allergies, I have added this one to my list. NEVER AGAIN WILL I TAKE THIS MEDICATION!!!

I have been "under" many times. Never have I recovered in just fifteen minutes. A few hours later I feel great, no drug hangover, no clouded memory. Thanks for this new miracle anesthesia treatment.
