If the dentist hits the right spot, it doesn't matter too much that the anesthetic preparation does not contain epinephrine. It just doesn't last as long. I asked my pdoc and dentist if the epinephrine would react badly with Parnate. Neither one of them produced a definitive answer, so I opted to not use the epinephrine. I have had 4 fillings and 2 root canals performed on me over the last month without epinephrine using Carbocaine (mepivacaine). "Carbocaine Plain" without epinephrine works fine for me.
Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
