Call: I hope you are not self medicating. Call the Dentist that treated you to review medication protocol. Taking both within a short period of time can be quite dangerous. If you are having dental pain you may need antibiotic rather than anti-anxiety medication or narcotic pain medication. Call your Dentist.
