I requested, and was given, a little bit of versed via IV for the myelogram. It could only be a little bit as they are not set up to do the myelogram under full sedation. They just found a doctor in the facility who would write the order and a few minutes later they stared the versed. It was a life saver. (Versed is given IV and relaxes you as valium would orally but better and helps you forget any pain you experience).
