Re: Local Anesthesia Induced Vaso vagal response

From: Kris


Matt, did the sedative work for you at the dentist?? My doctor gave me a mild tranquilizer( Lorazepam) to take if I'm feeling uncomfortable or I use it when I get injured to avoid fainting. So far it's been extremely helpful (I'd say I take it maybe once or twice a month) I have to go to the dentist next month though and I'm really scared it won't be enough.

It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
