Can IV be used for colonoscopy sedation?

This for regular colonoscopy not virtual. Can Ativan IV be utilized for sedation for colonoscocopy? Literature indicates 2-4 mg, dosing 0.044 mg/kg . I weigh 109 kg, which would come to 4.8 mg, which I assume is a high-end dose.

IV sedation is standard for colonoscopy and your gastroenterologist will discuss this with you.
