Celexa & Cough and Phlem & sore throat.

Hey Everybody! 

So I went to the dentist today and had Part 1 of my Root Canal. It was severely infected 4 roots and its tooth B14. I did great with the novicane, I’m getting savy with the teeth! I’m still on the antibiotics for another week to clear up the Face pain and puffines. I did develop a bad cough and cold and sore throat. I can’t stop coughing and it makes my head hurt.  I used a tussin cough med that I had in the house without thinking. After 20 min I was a mess. OMG the side effects were scary. What kind of cough medicine is good with citalopram?

    Since you just had a quite difficult procedure for dental infection, I think could be more wise to be checked by your doctor. This is in case it is not just a bad cold, but a secondary infection due to the dental procedure you just had, and so extra care is needed.

    Best regards and take care.

    I hope you’re doing okay Will. You will get past this. Im at the dentist tomorrow, I’m in so much pain in my jaw and right up into my eye socket, I know they’re going to drill my tooth out and then they’re going to asses the tooth and they’ll decide if it can be filled or if I need root canal surgery doing. I’m just not sure if it’s infected or not as I’ve never had such a throbbing pain over such a large area. I really hope that the numbing injection doesn’t react with my citalopram though, I’m more afraid of that than the pain I’ll be in.x
