Can Halcion and Vistaril be taken together?

My son is having a dental procedure this morning(wisdom teeth removed) and the dentist has ordered Halcion 1.0mg po and Vistaril 75mg po. He is 6 3 and 230lbs but has never had any kind of anesthesia and has only ever had antibiotics for strep throat. That seems like alot of medication to me.

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

The procedure itself is painful and would be very difficult to tolerate.

He is big person and would require more medication for the same sedative effect as someone who is more slightly built.

If you both have concerns regarding the medication then he should speak to his dentist.

I hope this helps
