If you are about to undergo surgery or a medical procedure, your healthcare provider may recommend Versed® (midazolam). This prescription medication is a type of benzodiazepine, which works by enhancing the calming effects of a chemical in the brain. As a result, Versed can cause the muscles to relax, reduce anxiety, cause sleepiness, and impair short-term memory.
Side effects of the drug may include nausea, breathing problems, and tenderness at the injection site. Among the conditions that you should let your healthcare provider know about before you use Versed are glaucoma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and any allergies you may have.
