Prozac and Epinephrine....

I'm not sure if that's the right word, it's the stuff that they use to numb your mouth , it's a shot. Well I take Prozac and when they give me that stuff I shatart shaking and trembling and twitching for about 5-10 mintutes. I was wondering if anyone else had a similar reaction

Re: Prozac and Epinephrine....

I thought they used one of the various -caine local anesthetic injections (Novocaine, etc) to numb the mouth during dental procedures. Why would they use epinephrine? The over-the-counter asthma inhaler I use has the active ingredient of like 0.22mg epinephrine per puff, and it doesn't numb my mouth at all. It does speed up my heart, that's for sure.

Rx:
Wellbutrin SR 300mg, Eskalith CR 900mg, Luvox 100mg

Things I have tried:
Lexapro, Zoloft, Celexa, Prozac, Paxil, Effexor XR, Remeron, Wellbutrin SR, Eskalith CR, Topamax, Valium, Xanax, Ativan, Ambien, Restoril, Desyrel, Ritalin, Adderall, Dexedrine, Inderal, Lopressor, Thorazine, Lamictal, Abilify, Depakote, Geodon, Seroquel, doxepin, chloral hydrate

Re: Prozac and Epinephrine....

"novacaine" is typically a mix of lidocaine and epinephrine. The purpose of the epinephrine is to cause your blood vessels to contract and hold the numbing agent in place so it doesn't wear off so quickly. The epinephrine will have some side effects on most people, but normally it is a fast heart rate and fast breathing rate.

Some people can't tolerate epinephrine and your dentist should be able to give you a shot without it, but it won't last as long.

I've had the no-epinephrine shot for a different reason. My blood vessels constrict too much, and the numbing agent takes about 1.5 hours to really get to work, and my mouth remains numb until about 5 hours afterwards. So I got one shot without, to get everything numb quickly, then one shot with, to keep it numb.
