Customer Question
I am having 6...

I am having 6 molar extractions tomorrow, at 10:30am, would 10ml of Robitussin DM tonite be a problem, using local anestesia.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Went to surgeon today but did not ask about DM, I am not taking any medications presently.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Codeine

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Filled a lengthy questionaire at office and it seems I am a good candidate for the extraction service.

Hello, DrMike at your assist...
There should be no problems with Robitussin DM (dextromethorphan/guaifenisen) and your anesthetics, especially since that you are not taking any other medications.

I would have no worries. Please let me know if you need some further clarification.
And please hit the Accept button if this addresses your concerns... -DrMike

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
