I need to have a wisdom tooth out soon and am worried about the whole adrenal suppression issue. I am self medicating with 20mg hydrocortisone, for low adrenal function, and am aware that, after 5 years of doing this, I probably now have adrenal suppression (ie. my adrenals may not be able to do much on their own anymore) and that this can turn into a life-threatening situation during tooth extraction. This is probably very unlikely to happen, but I want to be properly prepared - apparently ambulances either don't carry emergency steroid injections, or they do but prefer to get the patient to hospital for assessment by doctors, rather than inject the patient themselves........but my nearest hospital is an hour's drive away!
So, I want to buy my own emergency steroid injection. My doctor doesn't accept that the cause of my "ME" is hypothyroidism and poor adrenal function, hence why I've been self medicating with hydrocortisone (and T3) and why I need to buy an emergency injection without a prescription.
The online pharmacy I buy my hydrocortisone tablets from doesn't sell the injections. Has anyone had any success buying emergency steroid injections without prescription?? (Either for dental work or to carry in their handbags in case of emergency).
