However, total dosage should in general not exceed 5 mg IV, in case of concomitant use of other CNS depressants, the dose of midazolam has to be reduced.

– Induction: The dose is 10 mg IV. A sufficiently deep level of sleep is generally achieved after 2-3 minutes.

MAINTENANCE DOSE
For maintenance of the desired level of unconsciousness, further small doses should be injected IV. The dose and the intervals between doses vary according to the individual patient's reactions.

These additional doses should be given only after a thorough clinical evaluation clearly indicates the need for additional sedation. When midazolam is given with potent analgesics the latter should be administered first so that the sedative effects of midazolam can be safely titrated on top of any sedation caused by the analgesics.
