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.
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 more

Saliva tests and symptoms show low functioning adrenal glands, but how to know if there is need for hormonal medications such as hydrocortisone?
Work with your Dr: The accuracy of the salivary test results are depended on many factors including timing of the test and type of assay used. If your Dr determines the results are truly low, additional testing is needed to determine if due to primary or secondary adrenal insufficiency. Work with your doctor or endocrinologist and do not start hydrocortisone until then. ...Read more

The top of my foot and ankle have developed a rash/bumps that are flat not raised but extremely itchy. It has been about 4 days and still itchy. I have applied hydrocortisone. Even my daughters ezema medication (triamcinilone acetonide). Help!!!! So
Foot rash.: I was thinking of a contact dermatitis, but if cortisone has not helped it could be a fungal infection. Try some Lotrimin (clotrimazole) cream twice a day for a few days. If it gets better, continue for 2 weeks. If no improvement in a few more days, you may need to see your doctor. ...Read more
None: There is no cross reactivity with tests for Cocaine in the commonly used screening tests for drugs, and xylocaine (lidocaine) or novacaine (or any other) will not show up. ...Read more
No: Some people think because it has "caine" in it that it could show up as cocaine, but it is a completely different chemical with no overlap with any drugs of abuse. Test kits do not test for it, and confirmatory tests like gas chromatography/mass spectroscopy will determine exactly what it is if there is any question on the screening tests. ...Read more

Does low dose cortef (hydrocortisone) heal the adrenals, helping the patient to feel well again and enabling them to eventually go off the drug? Non-addison's.
No: Taking any dose of steroid causes the adrenal glands to work less, as the pituitary gland regulates your adrenal hormone level. If your adrenal glands truly do not work, you need lifelong adrenal hormone replacement. However, I see people who have been diagnosed with "adrenal fatigue". This is not a true medical diagnosis. Most of these people have no adrenal problem at all. ...Read more
I seem to have a VERY high tolerance to lidocaine. I have never done drugs. What could cause this?
