Mishi,

 

When I had a procedure done on my stomach.

They used Propofol-

Propofol (INN, marketed as Diprivan by AstraZeneca) is a short-acting, intravenously administered hypnotic agent. Its uses include the induction and maintenance of general anesthesia, sedation for mechanically ventilated adults, and procedural sedation. Propofol is also commonly used in veterinary medicine. Propofol is approved for use in more than 50 countries, and generic versions are available.

Chemically, propofol is unrelated to barbiturates and has largely replaced sodium thiopental (Pentothal) for induction of anesthesia because recovery from propofol is more rapid and "clear" when compared with thiopental. Propofol is not considered an analgesic, so opioids such as fentanyl may be combined with propofol to alleviate pain.[1] Propofol has been referred to as "milk of amnesia" (a pun on milk of magnesia), because of the milk-like appearance of its intravenous preparation.[2]

So on, ...

Also a small dose of Ketamine was used.

Ketamine-

Ketamine is a drug used in human and veterinary medicine. Its hydrochloride salt is sold as Ketanest, Ketaset, and Ketalar. Pharmacologically, ketamine is classified as an NMDA receptor antagonist.[2] At high, fully anesthetic level doses, ketamine has also been found to bind to opioid μ receptors type 2 in cultured human neuroblastoma cells, however without agonist activity,[3] and to sigma receptors in rats.[4] Also, ketamine interacts with muscarinic receptors, descending monoaminergic pain pathways and voltage-gated calcium channels.[5] Like other drugs of this class such as tiletamine and phencyclidine (PCP), it induces a state referred to as "dissociative anesthesia"[6] and is used as a recreational drug.

So on,...

Good luck.

Be careful with that Propofol. I've been watching the news and that's the drug given to Michael Jackson when he died. Of course, the so-called doctor treating him gave him too much...

Me on a "one day rescue dose vacation" from my c/t after 37 insane days. The c/t resumes tomorrow:  ???

Propofol (when used correctly) is supposed to be a very safe drug, and apparently a good choice for those of us who can't be given any benzodiazepines.  I know that if I need to be put under at some time in the future I will insist that they use this drug....at least from what I have researched and talked to my doctors about at this point.  Don't listen to the Michael Jackson stuff in regard to Propofol....much craziness associated with that as you know!
