I've had propofol several times and appreciate it as a choice for sedation. The recovery time is great -- I wake quickly and even remember the conversation I have with my GI after the procedure.

I amunsure if this has been used on me but we use it at the animal hospital I work at. If you are allergic to eggs you cannot use this drug since they are actually what make it white.

I've had it and like Shari said, you wake up feeling fine and can remember everything.
