Halcion

Has anyone had to take this on a semi regular basis? I take it for dental work (which I've had a lot of lately) and it seems I may be building up a tolerance. But, my dentist said it's rare to get a tolerance to this type of med (sedation).

Just wondering if anyone else has experienced the same.

  • If you are only taking it when you go to the dentist, it should not be an issue. Now if you have a prescription, and you are taking it daily, then, absolutely.

  • I only take it when I go to the dentist, but I've gone to the dentist every 2 weeks (sometimes even more often than that) since January. I'm recovering from an awful infection that was in 2 teeth, my jaw and caused lock jaw...

  • You should be fine. What you might be noticing is that you are more "comfortable" being sedated. It porbably has the same effect, but you are intepreting it differently.
