I need to have two teeth extracted, but the dentist is unwilling because I am taking xeralto - 20mg daily, he says it is dangerous it is such s strong drug and there is no antidote as there is with warfarin etc.,
He told me to either change the medication or find out a solution from my doctor which I did. My GP, said he cannot change the meds, only a cardiologist can, who I don’t see until middle of November. He called someone on the phone (I assumed it was a cardiologist) and was told that if I stop the xeralto for 48 hours prior to treatment then all should be well. I told my dentist this, but he is still very reluctant and wants me to speak to the cardiologist (easier said than done) and also have an INR test done the same day as the extractions. I have 2 very infected teeth/roots (not abscesses apparently) which are uncomfortable, so don’t want to wait until my cardio appointment in a month’s time.
