Hot rox and novacaine

I apologize if this has been answered before, but I’m supposed to go in thursday morning for some major work on my teeth before I leave town. I just scheduled the appointment today after my checkup, and I’ve been on hot rox for about a week now. I’m curious if I should be wary of any interactions between hot rox and novacaine like painkillers. I know hot rox causes a vasodilatory effect, which is why you can’t drink while on it, but I do not know how painkillers such as novacaine work and therefore I wanted to see if there could be a problem before I go in thursday.

Thanks for any help

The experience is bound to be a laugh riot but aside from slightly sore abdominals I don’t think you have anything to worry about.

Hot Rox can extend the time it takes for blood clots to form. If you are having surgery… I would suggest being off of it for a while.
