How Long Does It Take To Wake Up After Proposal Is Administered?

I was give propofol for a procedure and was curious how long it normally takes patients to actually wake up. I was apparently in the recovery room for close to 30 minutes before I was actually awake, although the nurse thought I was awake before that because she complained that I had already asked her a certain question 3 times.

Hello,

Propofol is exclusive in that it has an instant awakening and not followed by mental clouding.patient can even drive home. In the recovery room, you must be in the twilight stage.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
