My son Skyler, 5 is going in for three big fillings soon. He is also on Deflazacort. His pediatric dental specialist wants to sedate Skyler with an oral sedation first (Demerol?), then freeze the site with regular novocaine type injection, as well as use nitrous oxide/ oxygen through the procedure.
He is a highly skilled and recognized professional, but I know that Deflazacort has some potential adverse interreactions with some anesthetics, especially one called Succinocholine(sp?)
I habve spoken to his NM Doctor and also the dentist, but I am looking for some other real input as well on this matter.
Has anyone had any experience or know more about adverse interreactions with Deflazacort or generally with young boys with DMD?
