I am having two top jaw roots removed ready for implants - the proceedure will take an hour.

I am taking 2 x 2mg tranquilisers to get me through it - what's the optimum way to take them timewise - both together, or at separate times?

Any advice appreciated.

Thanks.

have u had them before?
is it lorazepam?
It might help the experts around here (such a Sqad) if you mention the name of the tranquiliser. Some might work differently to others.

However the general advice seems to be that you should take any sedative tablets you've been given about 1 hour before the procedure. In the absence of any other advice, I'd assume that you're expected to take them together but it might be best to phone the surgery for specific guidance anyway.
I was given Valium suppositories years ago but for all the good they did after swallowing them I'd have been as well sticking them up my orifice.
Will it be safe to drive with this type of drug?

I hope it all goes smoothly
Ill ask one of or more of the dentists in my hospital tomorrow
I would agree with your suggestion to take 2*2mgms about one hour before your procedure.
Remember to have someone drive you there and back.

And a very happy fifty-seventh birthday to that one!!
nice to see the archetypal suppository joke making an appearance

25 mins - well you asked and I say 25 m - and yes the name might be useful
2mg - a clue - likely to be loraze

How long does it take to work? Lorazepam tablets and liquid start to work in around 20 to 30 minutes. It reaches full sedating effect after 1 to 1.5 hours and lasts for around 6 to 8 hours.

hey look at that !
PP name doesn't matter.
It is either Diazepam or Lorazepam and the doses are just the same,
No anaesthetist - surely that would be safer.
Dentist’s around here, require tranquillisers before they will even come back to work.
this should have been talked about at the dentist - he can arrange for you to get most things you want to get the deed done.

You can get a little anaesthetic in the arm, gas and air, and plenty of numbing (ie probably novacaine).

If you get a choice ask for the arm scenario and get driven home.
er thank you sqad

and anyway how did it go
or - - - cant you remember
