In brief: Chloral hydrate effe

Most people given Chloral Hydrate for procedural sedation by a physician do not have a problem. However the potential side effects include the following: respiratory depression and general problems with breathing, choking, diarrhea, dizziness, headache, changes in mood, confusion, change of balance, ulcers, stomach bleeding with associated black stool, nausea or vomiting coffee grounds.
