Hi there, I have a fear of the dentist. More recently I have developed anxiety and panic attacks well in advance (a few days) prior to treatment. My question is; should I take Diazepam for 24 hours prior to treatment?
The dental surgeon has already prescribed it to try for my next visit.
I have never taken any medication like diazepam before and was wondering if there might be an alternative I could try. Although I was so bad before my last visit and during the treatment, I would be prepared to take the diazepam as long as it helps.
I have to go back in a week for a large filling (close to the root) and I am already worrying about it. I never used to be this bad.
Any suggestions would be appreciated, Thanks in advance!
