Anxiety board

Maybe your dentist can give you some valium or other perscription to help you calm down for the procedure?? Mine does.
Hi, Can the dentist give you valium? I thought you had to ask your primary doctor for it......I never took it before...I have health anxiety and would probably be scared to take the valium but maybe not......I may ask my doctor about it, but that's another story, she is way too busy, I never get to see her unless I scheduel way in advance, etc.......So has anyone who has had a root canal without the epi. give me any advice??? Thanks, Maria
I understand about being scared of taking meds, I am too. But just to let you know, it was my dentist - not doctor - who gave me a perscription for the valium. Good luck!
