what was your experience? Im going to the dentist and was told to take it an hr before my appointment. I don't know what to expect. Did it put you to sleep? Groggy?

  • My Dr. gave me a valium once to take right before an MRI so I would be relaxed...lol, total understatement. I was in the MRI tube less than 3 minutes before I zonked out for the entire test, which was about 45 mins. I felt good after, I remember totally noticing that my husband's crazy driving on the way home didn't stress me out even one bit, lol. I just felt very content and carefree.

  • Same for me as the above ladies... it was given to me to take prior to a procedure and it just relaxed me. I realized after the fact that I had probably been a little more "out of it" than I realized at the time. I thought I was just relaxed but I think I kinda did "drift" a little bit. Anyway, it served it's purpose and I felt fine from it afterwards. Everyone is different ofcourse but that was my experience. GL to you.

  • I had to take on before my Essure procedure. It just made me loopy and out of it. Wish it would've done more on the pain front though.
