Does Halcion make your fears of oral extraction go away or does it leave you defenseless against the Doctor?

Halcion may make your fear and anxiety of dental procedures the following day go away. It's not a shot btw, it's in pill form so you don't have to be afraid of taking it, on a very limited basis. IMO taking halcion for fear of an upcoming dental appointment would be OK, just don't take it on a daily basis or anything like that. Halcion is what they started doing all the sleep-walking studies on in the 1990's. People would take the hypnotic-sleeping pill and then sleep-walk, it is an amnesic, in that you may have taken the pill 2 hours ago and you can get up in your sleep and do stuff you'd never do awake. Taking the pill for fears related to dental procedures I thinks it totally acceptable, but only once or twice NOT ALL THE TIME. It is addictive and you need more to achieve the same effect. Taking it is fine, go ahead and relax for your dentist appointment, I do know, however, a woman that took Halcion for an extended period and killed her own mother in a sleep-walking murder incident. So beware of extended use. Have a good dentist appointment and don't worry about taking it once for anxiety. (now that I've scared you to death) lol... Jane Answered by Charles Reidel 4 months ago.

I dated a man for a long time and persisted (whilst neither folks have been with any one else) to have intercourse with each and every different for five years after wards. Why? Because we're first-rate peers and we now have demands. We have satisfactory intercourse and get each and every different like nobody else. We are nonetheless very well peers, however gave up the intercourse component to matters. It wasn't healthful. It used to be like a crutch for no longer putting in place time with anybody else. On paper we have been best. Best peers and satisfactory intercourse. In fact, we simply did not paintings. Now that we each observe it used to be dangerous and keeping us again from anything lasting with new men and women, we're a lot happier and maintain matters platonic. As on your husband, might be he is not there but and he or she is only a crutch. Or might be he's a crutch for her and he's quite seeking to aid her. These are questions he must ask himself after which be sincere with you. Answered by Stephaine Ahalt 4 months ago.

Is my Halcion sleeping medication good, or evil? ?
It makes me sleepy, but I don't wake up with a hangover like that Trazadone. But I don't think it lasts very long. I believe two hours. Asked by Margart Steman 4 months ago.

Halcion has a very short half-life. That's why it only last a few hours. That's also why Halcion is so addicting. There have been studies linking Halcion to depression, so if you are depressed, Halcion could exacerbate your depression. All of the benzodiazepines are addicting. Have you tried taking Benadryl? (Tylenol PM is the same thing as Benadryl, but you don't need extra Tylenol, so just purchase regular Benedryl, or the generic version, diphenhydramine.) It will make you very tired. Sometimes you'll awaken feeling pretty groggy; but at least Benadryl isn't addicting. Good luck. Answered by Kim Emler 4 months ago.

I am having one wisdom tooth pulled sometime in the next couple of weeks. It is an upper tooth. (I am 35 years old.)The tooth is not impacted. It is broken and has decay. I will be awake during the procedure, with just novocaine to numb the area. The oral surgeon and his assistant said I will not feel pain but I will feel up to about 20 pounds of pressure. This sounds extremely scary to me. Also, he gave me a prescription for Halcion, which he wants me to take before the extraction. I am also nervous about that, as I am very senstitive to medication, but he said all it will do is relax me and that it will also relax my jaw which will make it easier and faster for him to extract the tooth. I want it to be as easy and fast as possible so I am planning on taking the Halcion before my appointment. Has anyone had any experience? I am curious about reactions to Halcion and what to expect to feel when I take it, and about the pain and/or pressure I may feel during the extraction. Thanks! Answered by Freddie Marciante 4 months ago.

Halcion (triazolam) is a benzodiazepine...similar to Xanax (alprazolam) or Versed (midazolam). These are all highly addicitive and very frequently abused medications. They make you feel really relaxed and sleepy. So, the common "side-effects" are feeling drowsy, dizzy, light-headed, and clumsy...not unlike being drunk from alcohol, but without the nasty hangover. Rarely, people can have some GI side effects, like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation. But these are unlikely, especially given the small dose you were likely prescribed...and the short course for which you are taking it. And the "addiction" issue is NO problem whatsoever - as you will only be taking it this one time, before the procedure. So don't worry about this. (You should be more worried that a drug-seeker will find out you have it, and break into your house to get it. Seriously.) So...its up to you as to whether to take it. I sure would! The extraction would be quite miserable otherwise. But if you take it, you might even sleep through most of the procedure...! The initial "numbing" up of your mouth with the anesthetic will be painful and burn, regardless. But at least it only lasts for a short time, and then you are numb. I am very surprised they said you won't feel any pain. It is almost worst when you DO feel pain when they tell you that you won't! You will feel pain, but before you count to 60...you'll just feel numb. Without the Halcion and without the anesthetic, the dental extraction would be almost unbearably painful and miserable. In any event. I hope this helped some and that it goes well and without pain or difficulties for you! God bless. - Answered by Sal Minzenberger 4 months ago.

Halcion, contrary to what the dentist has told you is a very strong medication. My dentist gives me 3 teaspoons of it. You will be "Awake" but your mind will be closed. You will not feel a thing. You will not feel any pulling, in short Halcion "Closes your mind". I don't know if they told you or not, but you should take the Halcion 1/2 hour before your scheduled appointment, and you should take it, at the dentist's office, and be sure to have a ride home after that, as you will not be able to drive. The reactions to the medicine is "Talkativeness" you will talk alot, after the procedure, you may repeat things over and over again. Also it has a high amnesia effect so you won't remember doing or saying things. It may make you lightheaded so be careful walking. Other than that, you won't remember anything about your appointment, and if you do, it will be very slight, and you will have a "I can care less" feeling about it. Answered by Darleen Heckenberg 4 months ago.

Halcion is a sleeping pill. It will put you to sleep in about 20 minutes max. It is also of the same family of drugs as Valium and some other sleeping pills. Most of them are pretty good muscle relaxants. Don't worry about the extraction. Dentists are true experts in blocking pain. I had two wisdom teeth and one other tooth pulled under Novocaine, and they were all quick and easy. But there has to be pressure to get them loose. Pressure is not pain. And if the tooth breaks, you won't feel it, and it is a good thing if the tooth breaks because then it is much easier to get out. Dentists often break teeth before they try to extract them. The problem with taking the Halcion is that you are going to need someone to take you home, and you are going to sleep when you get home, and then you won't be able to sleep that night. Halcion (along with a bunch of related drugs) has a kind of rebound effect, so that when it wears off you are wide awake and couldn't possibly sleep. So don't worry about suffering, but do plan on what the Halcion is going to do to you. Answered by Alba Rigler 4 months ago.

I once had a skin graft to enhance my receeding gums. To do this, they take the skin from the roof of your mouth. The dentist gave me a halcion beforehand to calm my nerves. It made me very relaxed, and the procedure went smoothly. I highly recommend the halcion. If you get a prescription, it also works as a killer sleeping pill. Answered by Edmund Elchert 4 months ago.

Halcion is ALL GOOD. Nothing to worry about!! It'll really calm you down. If he gave you a few, try one half at home. You'll see, it's all good. Stop stressing, hon! :) Answered by Shara Hessman 4 months ago.


How does dalmane compare with halcion?
Asked by Rachal Holub 4 months ago.

This Site Might Help You. RE: how does dalmane compare with halcion? Answered by Usha Edward 4 months ago.

What do you mean, "compare?" Dalmane is a narcotic barbiturate sleeping medication that isn't used very often anymore. Halcion is a much more modern sleeping medication that works in a different manner, and doesn't have the addictive properties of Dalmane. For this reason, Halcion (and Ambien) have pretty much replaced the old fashioned barbiturate sleeping pills. They are occasionally used in the hospital the night before your surgery, but they are very seldom prescribed for use outside the hospital anymore. You can get hooked on them.

Halcion (triazolam) is a distant cousin of valium (diazepam) and is typically used for sleep. It is very short acting, but you could have some drowsiness the next day. Be careful driving or doing other potentially dangerous activities before you know how the medicine will affect you. Although it is possible to become dependent on halcion, most people who don't have a history of substance abuse and take it short-term shouldn't have a problem. Answered by Jamel Marsico 4 months ago.

My bet is that it is safe. I've never taken it but if they're giving it to you, then it most likely is okay. Just don't over do it. Use onlly when necessary. Good luck. Answered by Bunny Samway 4 months ago.


Is a 0.25mg pill of Halcion sufficient?
I was prescribed Halcion to take before a dental procedure......is it good to take to reduce my anxiety about and and will it make me sleep during it or atleast be out of it enough to deal?? If you can't already tell, i have a serious phobia of the dentist. Asked by Azalee Tygart 4 months ago.

Halcion is used mostly for sleep. I guess you can also use it for anxiety. 0.25mg is the higher of the two strengths so it should be sufficient. Take good care of your teeth and they will take care of you. Answered by Marcelino Hunt 4 months ago.
