I happened upon this subject on the internet and some anxiety sufferers are saying that novocaine can cause increased anxiety and panic attacks because the novocaine the dentists use has epinephrine in it. Last month I had a couple of fillings done and noticed after the dentist injected me with the novocaine I felt more nervous. I just thought the anxiety was related to my mouth feeling numb and my tongue feeling big. After the injection I was regretting not taking my xanax pre-visit. Thank God my husband was with me. I managed to keep myself calm during the procedure but as soon as we left the office I told my husband that I needed a xanax. He told me I would be fine and was able to keep me calm. The nervous feeling maybe lasted for 15 minutes after I left the office and then I was fine. Anyone have a similar experience? I heard that they can give you novocaine without the epinephrine.
