Even though, it’s rapid long lasting benzodiazepine. It can take up to 40min. to kick in. Try not to eat a high fat meal beforehand because, it also affects how it will work. Usually, it lasts for most people four or more hours who don’t have a high tolerance to the medicine.
So, try to take it 40min. beforehand to make sure it kicks in and you should be fine.
I hope everything goes well. Take care!
In order to relax prior to and remain relaxed during, take it about 30 minutes before. Note. Don’t assume it will be done exactly at your appt time. Check first to see if they’re running on schedule so you’re not sitting in the waiting room wasting your ‘everything’s lovely’ time reading People magazines. I hope that helps answer your question. I’ve had MRIs and they make a thunk thunk noise but unless you’re wildly claustrophobic, they’re more boring than anything else. Sometimes they have a pretty picture above to look at. Sometimes you just have to amuse yourself. Hope it turns out well and no worries at all!
