Not enough info: We would need more information about why you were advised not to use local anesthesia with epi. Was it because of concerns about epinephrine, which can cause an increase in heart rate and blood pressure? Or another reason? In general, a physician would not advise against something without good cause. Please provide more information about the problem or injury; then we may be able to help.
