... given me a prescription for Valium 5, one before bed and two an hour before my treatment, will this work for me, i cannot imagine letting a dentist work on my mouth while i am conscious
The Dentists I go to for extractions put you to sleep if you want that. Doesn't your guy? If he doesn't go to oral surgeons for extraction. Mine are very good. I never go to sleep and that's how I know. But there's nothing wrong with getting put to sleep. You just need someone to drive you home.
The Valium will have you pretty sedated before you get there. Don't try to drive after taking 2 of them. It won't be safe. Just go and don't worry. You will be fine.
Dear Wendy. The amount of Valium that you described is extremely safe. The 10 mg that you take prior to going will calm you down. You will be do fine. you will be sedated lightly but not asleep.
Just an FYI... never allow Yourself to be put to sleep anywhere without the properly required safety equipment and properly trained anesthesia provider.
Good luck. Pup
