Maximal effect is obtained within 10 – 15 minutes. Duration of the clinically useful effect is dose related – 30 to 120 minutes (sedation), 30 to 150 minutes (analgesia). The dose can be repeated if necessary. The duration of analgesia is generally shorter than the duration of sedation. Both analgesic and sedative effects are reversed with the use of atipamezole injection.
