Propofol, used to sedate patients ahead of surgery, is suspected to be among the drugs which police and health officials seized on Monday when they raided the SureWay Weight Loss Clinic. A reliable source told the MIDWEEK NATION yesterday that it was the only drug which carried a label but one bottle was missing from the box. Propofol reduces anxiety and tension and promotes relaxation and sleep or loss of consciousness. It is the drug which caused the death of pop icon Michael Jackson, who died from acute propofol intoxication. The drug should only be administered by a trained anaesthesiologist. Officials seized a number of drugs and documents from the clinic which is operated by Trinidadian Dr Surelia Reid who also operates four clinics in Trinidad.
