Did your dentist prescribe the valium for your procedure?  I would be very apprehensive about taking this.  There are other alternatives.  I am having 11 teeth pulled and have made it very clear i do not want any mood altering drugs.

Thanks Sarah, What alternatives? Heart Patient. Heart attack 2012, 2nd heart cath in 2013. My heart bangs just going to the dentist. Appt on the 16th.
Thanks Sarah, What alternatives? Heart Patient. Heart attack, mini stroke 2012, 2nd heart cath in 2013. My heart bangs just going to the dentist. Appt on the 16th. One size doesn't fit all. Easy question, will 1 valium cause w/d to return? No way will I desire it since I didn't during w/d the 1st time. There is a difference between addiction and dependence.
You will be okay with 1.  Given all you have going on this may be the best for you.  I hate going to the dentist too.
