Medical and Dental Implications of the Most Common Physician-Prescribed Medications!!”
Should I use caution when prescribing NSAIDs with antihypertensives? Can NSAIDs cause atrial fibrillation? Can I prescribe an NSAID in a patient who takes warfarin? Can I prescribe fluconazole (Diflucan) for a patient taking clopidogrel (Plavix).There are hundreds of drug interactions but only a handful is clinically relevant. Is antibiotic prophylaxis required for patients with orthopedic prostheses? Your patients are living longer thanks to their medications but many of the physician-prescribed medications used by your patients have dental implications and side effects affecting your treatment plan. Some medications are more likely to cause violent behavior and others can cause a “burning mouth syndrome”. What analgesic is the safest for a pregnant patient?

This presentation includes the indications, contraindications, and side effects of the most commonly prescribed medications. Many of these medications were not approved when you took your pharmacology course in dental school. These medications represent one third of all prescriptions taken by your dental patients and familiarity with these drugs will provide the dental practitioner with a better appreciation for the health profile of your dental patient.

At the conclusion of this course, the attendees will know:

• Medications that could adversely interact with dental drugs.

• Why your patient is taking their medications.

• Side effects may be caused by these medications.

• Maximum doses for commonly prescribed pain medications.

• When not to prescribe NSAIDs.

• How to combine analgesics to maximize their effects.

• Current recommendations for SBE and orthopedic prosthesis prophylaxis

This presentation is useful for the entire dental team.
