The reason I ask is I am going to get my two wisdom teeth pulled and I don't want to go under IV sedation. Here some background on me: My whole family is very sensitive to drugs, anesthesia, ext. My mom especially. I have never been able to tolerate them well, except as a teenager, when I would smoke pot and drink a lot. When I was 18 I smoked some pot that was very potent, and I had a terrible high that I couldn't come down off, and since then, I have never been able to reallly do anything. I used to be able to tolerate alcohol, but now I can't even take a drink without getting really flushed, and dizzy, and nearly fainiting.<br><br>
On top of it all, I am having some as of yet undiagnosed health problems which may or may not be related to my teeth, and and due to that I have issues with stomachaches and reflux, so I'm not able to go very long without food. I'm very scared, because I have no idea what could happen to me while I'm under, or that my body might have a terrible reaction and I might die. I am SO sensitive that sometimes Ibeprofeon is too much for me. Anybody in the same boat of have any ideas of information that I might find helpful? Thanks!

I am....tell the dr to take it easy on the meds and explain your situation. I can get drunk on accident <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> and sleep meds really knock me out too.<br><br>
When I had my wisdom teeth out they gave me a little too much...I am okay I just could not really wake up and walk around for about 9 hours after.<br><br>
I had surgery a few months ago and the anesthesiaologist gave me a little someting while I was awake and then he said that told him how tolerant I was. I woke up just fine after that surgery.<br><br>
It wil be okay<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"> ...just communicate you fears and find a dr you trust.<br><br>
