Question: Will I be able to drive home after my sedation appointment?



Answer: Depending on the type of sedation you receive, you will likely not be able to drive home. With the exception of laughing gas, you will not be able to drive home on your own. For oral and IV sedation, are you required to have an escort accompany you to the appointment, drive you home and stay with you for the remainder of the day. In addition to not being able to drive, you are restricted from going to work that day, operating heavy machinery, making major decisions while under the influence, and being alone. It is for these reasons that you must have a responsible escort be with you at all times for the duration of the day.
