Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

Fear of closed spaces is common among individuals with nervousness and it can be dealt with one time medication such as xanax 0.25 mg or clonotril o.25 mg half hour before planned procedure.

The medications keep the fear under control so the procedure can be completed without any harm.

I hope this helps you.
Feel free to write back to me if you have more questions.
Thanks and regards.
