Methadone Sedation Causes and Reviews


If you are having surgery, your doctor will give you medicine called an anesthetic. Anesthetics reduce or prevent pain. There are three main types:

  • Local - numbs one small area of the body. You stay awake and alert.
  • Regional - blocks pain in an area of the body, such an arm or leg. A common type is epidural anesthesia, which is often used during childbirth.
  • General - makes you unconscious. You do not feel any pain, and you do not remember the procedure afterwards.

You may also get a mild sedative to relax you. You stay awake but may not remember the procedure afterwards. Sedation can be used with or without anesthesia.

The type of anesthesia or Sedation you get depends on many factors. They include the procedure you are having and your current health.

Methodone Side Effects, I have had many trips to Emergency Unit at my Town, having tight painful heart problems. But when they do the Tests for Heart attacks, I jave always been told I have no problem my heart is fine. I have had ECG Tests, all fine. The only thing I can put it to ie: 250 milligrams of Methodone Tablet for Chronic Pain at the highest point was 50 x 5mg Tablest per day. I have had my leg amputated which I had the medication for. Can you confirm what I should be asking my GP, and what literature orResearch papers I can refer to. Thank you Geoff perry
