Emergency Room procedure

I need a fast-acting, short-lived drug to sedate a violent fifteen year-old to stop him from further injuring himself. My online research led me to Brevital (Methohexital),administered by IV, which a couple sources indicated is often used in this situation on someone my character's age. My editor is suggesting Ativan. But I'm finding Ativan can take up to 30 minutes to act and is not recommended for anyone under eighteen. Can someone make a suggestion?
