Brief Answer: Needs immediate management in hospital Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX I went through your query and understood your concerns. Propofol should not be given if you are allergic to propofol or to eggs, soy products, or soybeans. Need to be causious if you have any seziure disorder, liver or kidney problem and if are on any medication. Need to monitor your heart function, blood pressure, and breathing while you are under the effects of propofol. There is no particular drug to reverse all its side effect. Symptomatic treatment is required. Attention to impending airway compromise, significant hypotension, dysrhythmias, and seizures takes precedence Monitor the cardiovascular system and support with intravenous fluids and vasopressors as required. You need to be manged in a hospital . So consult your doctor immediately. Hope this information helps you. feel free to ask related query. Regards
