Can having root canals re-done hinder healing? « on: August 07, 2018, 08:56:36 am »
Hey! I’ve had an awful time tapering this year. I held for almost 3 months after gradually cutting 12% of my previous dose. However, the terror and depression just keep rearing their ugly heads. I tapered more last year and had little trouble.
I was starting to wonder if this may be because I’ve reached 5mg or if it’s an external factors. In June, my dentist discovered that my old root canals have gone bad. I had 7 dentist appointments to clear them out. I asked for a non-epi shot, but I’m still wondering if this has been keeping me from healing. I also took an antibiotic (Augmentin) in June.
I can deal with a long taper, but not when it’s like this all the time. I don’t know if I should hold or just keep going. Anyone?
