Today’s video talks about how to talk to your dentist (or doctor) about ordering custom prescription medicines that are free of salicylates. In the dental world, finding over-the-counter medicines, or medicines they use on patients, is challenging because they are often flavored with mint. Out of all my salicylate sensitivities, mint is one of my most violent reactions, even if it’s in a tiny amount. Ultimately, I ended up with lidocaine made at my local compounding pharmacy. I’ll just have to bring it in for future work – but I think that’s worth it.
