Hello

NO

Any such medication needs to be managed by your dentist and doctors.

The dentist might, for example, give you something that would interact with these meds.

Never, ever do this on your own, and make sure the doctor in charge is informed about all of your medications.

OK, so that is an initial answer….

Hello

I do not do phone calls.

We can not help you with the management of your dental procedure.

You need to tell the doctor about this problem.

Typically, dentist will have you start anti anxiety medicine in advance of the procedure.

And they will manage how much you take as you go.
