Is stuffy nose caused due to midazolam hydrochloride injection given during colonoscopy?
User rating for this question
The last time I had a colonoscopy, when the setative wore off, my nose ran like a faucet for 2 days, then stopped as abruptly as it started. The injection was midazolam hydrochloride 1 mg and fentanyl citrate .1mg. I am scheduled for a partial corneal transplant and don't want to have to deal with the nose issues. Is it possible that it was a reaction to the sedative?

Brief Answer: There is no cause for concern Detailed Answer: Hi welcome to Healthcare-Magic Greetings of the day Midazolam may cause stuffiness of the nose, but prolonged discharge is unlikely. The nasal problem you experienced was just a co-incidental thing and unlikely to be due to it. So there is no cause for concern. Wishing you best of luck for the Surgery.
