** Mystique's drugged beer also takes effect the second Mr. Laurio downs the last of it, where the pills have settled. Granted, he was already drunk from the first few beers.

This is ArtisticLicenseMedicine in the extreme. In RealLife, drugs can take anywhere from a few seconds (as with inhaled sedatives and anesthetics used in surgery) to several minutes (as with intramuscular injections of many animal tranquilizers, as frequently observed in wildlife documentaries) to several hours (as with sedatives that are administered in food or drink) to take full effect. Similarly, dosage matters; the amount required to sedate a muscular man or a large animal would kill a smaller person, with the converse also true: a dose safe for a normal person might barely faze a [[TheBigGuy Big Guy]]. There is a reason why surgeries requiring full general anesthesia have an anesthesiologist there whose ''entire job'' is to monitor the type and amount of drugs going into the patient. For a full treatment of these and other issues, see the [[Analysis/InstantSedation Analysis]] page.

Furthermore, a doctor who used drugs to subdue an out of control patient would almost certainly lose her license, get in trouble with her malpractice insurance provider, and possibly face criminal charges.
