Versed is a brand name for the medication midazolam, which is a short-acting benzodiazepine. The duration of its effects varies depending on the dose, method of administration, and individual factors such as age, weight, and metabolism.
When given intravenously, midazolam’s effects typically last for 2-4 hours. When given orally or intranasally, the effects may last longer. However, the duration of the drug’s effects should be monitored by a healthcare professional, and patients should avoid driving or operating heavy machinery until the effects wear off.
