In brief: Mainly sleepiness

Propofol is a medication given intravenously to produce sedation or sleep.
It has become very popular since it has very few side effects; very little "hangover' feeling, and very little other effects such as nausea or anxiety. However, it can depress breathing. An anesthesiologist should supervise your care if you are going to receive rocumonium or any muscle relaxant.
