Oral sedation is induced by a sedative pill. Shortly after, you will experience a deeply relaxed state but remain conscious and responsive. You may even go to sleep and generally have little memory of the experience. You will be monitored to insure proper breathing and adequate oxygenation of the blood. The patient must be escorted by a caregiver and cannot drive for the rest of the day.
