What do doctors use to calm patients?
I'm writing a story, and I need to know because the main character is freaking out majorly. Oh, and if you can tell me what it feels like to come out of a two year coma, I'd really appreciate it. :)

Well it kinda depends on what the doctors want to do to him/her... Are they trying to calm him/her down? Just trying to ease the panicking/fear? Or do they want to knock him/her out for a couple of hours? Anti-depressants are often used with panicking disorders. Mainly the TCA's such as Clomipramine, Dosulepine, Doxepine, Amitriptyline, ... Possible side effects are: weight gain, sexual problems (ejaculation- and erectiondisfunction), shivering and sweating, higher risk of having suicidal toughts (ironic, isn't it?) For fear the most used group are the benzodiazepines, like diazepam (a favourite in House M.D if i'm not mistaken) Also you could go for a antipsychotic. If you want to knock him/her back out, you have to go for an anaestetic. Here you have things like esmeron, celocurine, mivacron, nimbex, norcuron, ... which are admininstered intra-muscular And the intra-venous anaesthetics such as diprivan, hypnomidate, ketalar,...
