    sedation/ wear off

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to give me your considered opinion concerning the interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    I felt the sedation wearing off and lucidity taking its place.

    sedation = tranquillization

    wear off = fade away
