I had a tooth out yesterday about 3 injections of anesetic, was very shakey aterwards came home and slept for a couple of hours. Been taking paracetamols 8 a day. Only taken 6 so far today saving the last two before I go to bed. Just taken my 20mg cit, I am sitting here feeling very weak can hardly lisf my arms, eyes very tired & ache mouth is pounding. Have been drinking plenty of water today and managed to eat something earlier on. Do you think it is just a combintion of things?? or something different. Never felt like this before,

    Ooh tooth extraction can be quite traumatic .... I had one pulled many years ago under local anesthetic, had stitches, then got an infection in the gum /wound and felt dreadful, and then to add to that I was put on antibiotics and then found I was severely allergic to Penicillan which made me even more ill boooooo :-(

    Not surprised you feel so tired - it takes a lot out of you.  Painkillers and the anesthetic have probably made you feel tired and weak too, as well as,the trauma of having a tooth out plus the pain - so best off in bed and sleep it off.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    I would first assume that the having your tooth out, the parcetamol and taking citalopram (which makes some people very tired) as just a combination of needing a good sleep. I had my wisdom tooth out under local and when I got home I had 2x 2 hour naps just because of the tooth so adding on top with your meds you're probably just exhausted. But obviously if you are seriously worried then maybe call nhs helpline for some advice.

    Hi Tina,

    Hope you are feeling a little, if not better this morning.

    I have two teeth upper right side of me mouth which should have come out at the last appt, but Dentist wanted me to try something to save them!

    Anyway, yet again when I have had a big question to ask someone has got there before me! So, I take it that being on 40mg does not effect the local anaesthetic then?

    Glad to hear from you.

    Have a good weekend everyone!

    Bestest Regards,

    David x

    Thanks everyone

    Had a disturbed night yet again with dreams but managed a better sleep this morning. It's now 12.30ish so I better get up I suppose and see if I can eat something.

    David the dentist doubled checked my medication before proceeding so I assume you have notified your dentist what you are taking on previous appointments.
