Pain Management
In brief: No real answer
There are many variables including what drug(s) were used and the patients kidney and liver function.
I would think 2-6 hours is a fair range.

In brief: Depends
Depends on a multiplicity of factors.
Pre sedation condition. Type of sedation used. Other meds given. Ability of liver and kidney to clear medication. Tolerance to meds, etc. The person administering sedation should have a real good idea of the factors involved.
