Brief Answer:
Sedatives are contraindicated in end stage liver

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for feedback and sorry for delay. In all end stage liver disease of any etiology all kind of sedatives are contraindicated as they may precipitate hepatic encephalopathy. So it is never advisable to take any sedative in liver disease as none is safe. You may also discuss with your treating doctor regarding this. Wish you a good health
