Had to go to the dentist yesterday and found out I needed a root canal and a crown done. When I got there I was told my tooth had absessed and this needed to be done right away. So I spent over two hours getting this taken care of yesterday, now my mouth is still sore. They did give me medicine for the pain and the infection. The paid medicine worked but did it give me a weird night. I did not get restful sleep and had many strange dreams that seemed like I was still awake. I am afraid to take them today at work for the way they made me feel. One thing is for sure I will never take any illegal drugs because I don't like the way the prescibe ones make me feel and I can't imagine what the others would do to me. Do you have a funny reaction to pain medicines?

Funny reactions...heck yea. Either I quickly grow a resistance to them ( the novicane & nitrus have no effect on my now )or they completely knock me out & leave me nautious when I do come to. There's no inbetween.

I was good with the novacane it was just the pain medicine afterwards when I got home. I really don't do well with it, I wished it would knock me out so I could sleep through it. It just makes my mind wonder on crazy things.

I had a root canal done last year, and I didn't do a crown on it though, because the dentist gonna charge me up to $1200 for the crown along with bridge. The insurance only pay 50% of it. I just don't have much money for it. Lately, my dentist scolded me for the hygiene problem of my teeth again, and I should work up my hygiene to make my teeth healthier.

I know all about the cost. I have been round and round with the dentist office and the insurance company. I finally got them down to doing both the root canal and the crown for $535.00. I think if they came up with better dental insurance more people would be able to get their teeth taken care of. The insurance never wants to pay for anything. Good luck to you.

Thanks, actually have not had any pain today. Which is a good thing because I really did not want to take a pain pill at work.

Nope, I do not have weird reactions to most pain killers but I did have a weird reaction for advil. That is why my doctor prescribed me another brand :) Just ask your doctor for an alternative. i am sure that there is one. happy mylotting.
