Diprivan How to Take

Diprivan (Propofol) belongs to a class of medications known as hypnotics or anaesthetics. Hypnotics cause sleep and reduced sensitivity to pain by reducing the movement of pain messages through the nerves. They may cause partial or complete unconsciousness.

Diprivan (Propofol) is used to induce and maintain sleep as part of anesthesia during surgery for adults and children 3 years of age and older. It may be used for adults before an uncomfortable procedure, to relax and reduce awareness but not cause deep sleep. This is referred to as conscious sedation. Diprivan (Propofol) is also used to reduce awareness and cause sleep for adults who are being treated in an intensive care unit. This reduces awareness of surroundings and thus reduces the stress on the body, allowing recovery.

Diprivan (Propofol) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Diprivan (Propofol) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Diprivan (Propofol) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested this medication for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are receiving this medication, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Diprivan (Propofol) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Diprivan (Propofol) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take this medication if their doctor has not prescribed it.
