Hi Mike!: Many different pharmaceuticals are used in anesthesia & it would take a book to answer this seemingly simple question. Your anesthesiologist knows which ones s'he uses and can avoid those that might interact with calcium channel blockers like nifedipine. So as long as s'he knows that you're taking nifedipine (and which form) and you take the last dose when advised, you'll be okay. ...Read more
The dentist may use anesthetic such as 0.3ml lidocaine with 1:100, 000 epinephrine. Would this interact/ have problems with my heart or BP medication.
Little concern: Stress form the procedure, particularly if you were not numb, would cause your body to release more Epinephrine then what is in the local anesthetic. That said I do try to error on the side of caution depending on the heart condition by not using the maximum dose( approximately 8 full injections) and breaking up multiple procedures over several appointments. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Cocaine was and still is used as an anesthetic for throat or eye surgery, but it's harmful as a street drug. Why is this?
Rarely used: Cocaine is a great anesthetic for topical (surface) needs. In the U.S., it is so difficult to obtain legally that it is rarely used any more. When used as a street drug, it is used internally (not topically) either by inhalation or injection. It is highly addictive; some say that a single usage can cause addiction. That's scary. Topical use does not cause the euphoric effects of internal use. ...Read more
Can a food allergy just develop? Had a laparascopy a month ago, could the general anasthetic trigger a food allergy? No medication taken after op
No: General anesthesia cannot trigger a food allergy. If you are allergic to a food, you were susceptible to the allergy to begin with. It has nothing to do with having anesthesia. General anesthesia cannot modify your body's genetically determined immune response to allergens. However, intraoperative allergic reactions can occur with anesthesia in people with certain food or drug allergies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
