> My understanding is that if the doctors know you're taking an MAOI, they can be prepared to address interactions if they have to give you anesthesia. Whether that means using alternate anesthetics, or mitigating the hypertensive reaction to standard anesthetics, I don't know. I don't think there's a doctor alive today who would perform surgery without anesthetic, though, even in an emergency.

> As for dental work, I suspect the answer is that, for planned procedures, you stop the MAOI for a period before the procedure, and after. That's only a guess, though.

It's ok to have dental work as long as they dont add epiniphrine to the novacaine. Just tell the dentist hat you are on an MAOI and they can give you pure novacaine. Post op demerol is ok as well.

> I very strongly urge you, though, to get some sort of MedAlert bracelet. Something that tells the world of emergency medicine professionals that you are taking an MAOI.

Definatly!
