Depends on the med: Sedation in a 3yo is generally well tolerated when used in the basically healthy child. The term sedation has a variable meaning, with a bit of benedryl making some groggy to the gas anesthesia that puts them in deep sedation. Side effects depend on the med & how fast it leaves their system.
