Please advise me. What do you feel like when you wake up from sedation?

In brief: IV Sedation

In the 4 times that I have had IV sedation, when I wake up I have no knowledge of any discomfort or what happened over the period of time from when I received my first dose to the time that the medication wore off.
You may be a little groggy and want to take a nap later in the day. Standard instructions dictate that you avoid driving for 24 hours.
