Versed Hypotension Causes and Reviews

You've probably heard that high blood pressure is a problem. Sometimes blood pressure that is too low can also cause problems.

Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your arteries. Each time your heart beats, it pumps out blood into the arteries. Your blood pressure is highest when your heart beats, pumping the blood. This is called systolic pressure. When your heart is at rest, between beats, your blood pressure falls. This is the diastolic pressure. Your blood pressure reading uses these two numbers. Usually they're written one above or before the other, such as 120/80. If your blood pressure reading is 90/60 or lower, you have low blood pressure.

Some people have low blood pressure all the time. They have no symptoms and their low readings are normal for them. In other people, blood pressure drops below normal because of a medical condition or certain medicines. Some people may have symptoms of low blood pressure when standing up too quickly. Low blood pressure is a problem only if it causes dizziness, fainting or in extreme cases, shock.

Versed Hypotension Reviews

Fri, 17 Feb 2012

I am an Diabetic for 50 yrs. I do have good control (5.9 -7.2)
I have had three Pain blocks and was given Versed as an anesthesia.
My blood sugars went very high, just above 500. Usually have readings
between 60-150.
I stayed up all night watching and adjusting insulin(I do have a pump).
Will check with my MD. Just thought it might be helpful to readers.
I was pretty alarmed.  But, Versed helped me with procedure.  Just
had to be aware, check and adjust.

I had a very simple endoscopic procedure to remove a biliary stent.  Wasn't supposed to take more than five-minutes.  Versed was used.  I because extremely agitated.   The physician kept yelling more fentynel Sp more fentynel sp or something like that.  It felt like I needed to run out of my skin.  I could feel my heart racing.   I could feel everything like it was heighened.  I will not have that stuff in my body again!

I went in for what was supposed to be cortisone injections with shoulder manipulation underanethesia. The doctor looked me in the eyes and promised me he would knock me out completely. He told me he was going to give me Versed which would make me forget the procedure. I told him I did not want to be awake at all during this procedure and he gave me his word. HE LIED! Not only was I awake during the procedure I was fighting them the whole time. I was yelling at them calling them pretty bad names and they just thought I was funny. If they knew I was in so much pain why didn't they do something about it. Why would they let a patient fight so hard. I thought Versed and twilight sleep you are supposed to be comfortable and pain free. What a lie. Here's the bad part. I need a knee replacement but thanks to the lies of this doctor I am now scared to death to have the done and probably won't because now the "TRUST" issue is gone. If you cannot trust your doctor I guess You're screwed!

I recently had a cataract operation at the Jules Stein hospital eye institute, which is associated with UCLA hospital in Westwood wood California. Although the operation was a success, the use of Versed during the operation was a disaster for me. For five weeks after I had great trouble with memory loss. Not being able. That said..sble to remember such simple things as my address, telephone No. Or where I was going when I would leave the house on an errand. I sometimes had trouble remembering simple words and would not be able to express myself properly. It has now been 2 months since the operation, and there are times that I still don’t feel up to par. That said I was never informed about side effect, plus the fact that the clinic charged an additional 100 dollars for an examination after I had already had a complete workup on week before. Versed is a terrible drug.

My fifteen-year-old daughter had oral surgery three years ago (when she was 12) where Versed was used for the proceedure. She had to be awakened by paramedics with a sternum rub when I could not waken her once I brought her home from the surgeon's office. Shorty after the sugery, she began to display symptoms of anxiety which grew in severity to the point where she had to be forced to leave our home. She is still coping with anxiety syptoms whereas, before the application of the drug, she was a confident, well adjusted 12-year-old.

Got Versed without knowledge or consent. Never expected a doctor to give me a date-rape drug. Took me a while to figure out why I am so angry, obsessive, enraged after an endoscopy. Took me a while to figure out what was done to me. Now I know why the doctor and nurses gave me such a creepy feeling with their evasive non-answers to ANY question. If it was for my benefit, they would have asked me. Instead, my doctor and the staff didn't need to answer any questions or waste time with my care. Instead of the conscious sedation promised, they chose to wipe my memory rather than be concerned about my suffering. What is really frightening is that these people actually believe that explicit memory is the only kind. Almost a week later and I am haunted, frightened, crying, in helpless rage at myself for trusting someone so twisted as to torture a helpless, gagged and drugged person and then wipe their memory of it. How do I know it was so bad? Why else would you cover your tracks with sneaky amnesia as a replacement for adequate anesthesia or analgesia?

8 day ago I had an endoscopy where they used Versed. Since then I have had a horrible time with short term memory. I have had episodes of feeling agressive, angry and verbally hostile and seemed to be "out of control". I have had a "wired" feeling, difficulty falling asleep and lots of anxiety during the day. I am normally a very calm, organized person and can't seem to get things back in control. Fortunately I went through the late 60's and early 70's meditating and doing yoga. I have been counting on these methods of healing to get back to normal. Can't wait to feel like myself again.
