So the dentist gave me four Valium to help with the anxiety before a root canal, but I am a medicine phobe and hate taking anything for any reason really.
So my question is how likely is it for someone to have an allergic reaction to diazepam / Valium? I know that Valium has been around for a really long time and people take it in excess of 30 years with no physical side effects aside from addiction and dependence. I’m still concerned though. Thanks!
Slim to none. Your dentist had to go to school as long as your physician did. They would know if you had any odd condition that would predispose you to any problem. As you said its been around long enough that they know enough about it to avoid that prob. Sounds like you have some anxiety issues and that might explain why they wrote the script for 4 . just take it and relax. You cant live your life in fear.
