Just got back from the doctor's after being told they no longer prescribe Diazepam for phobias. I was given some 3 years ago to get me through a root canal treatment and I've now got to have the same tooth taken out! I can't go through with it without something! My dentist doesn't prescribe anything apart from antibiotics!! :ohmy:

Someone else just posted in this forum to say they can't get it either.

You could try some herbal alternatives but you will get through it without because you have to.

I definitely do have to as I don’t have a choice �� Which herbal alternatives are there?

Is sedation via the dentist a possibility? Not all seem to offer it.

Rescue Remedy is one you can try.

My dentist doesn't offer sedation. I've been to the chemist and bought rescue remedy spray that you put on your tongue so will see how that goes.

It was easy peasy! I was in and out within 20 mins. It's the discomfort I've had since the anaesthetic wore off. Nearly a week ago now and healing well. Thanks for asking.

That's excellent! Big proof there then that you can take control and tell anxiety to do one :winks:
