does xanax help pain relief during lip injections?

I am not sure xanax will eliminate your pain while being injected in your lips. It will relax you a bit but you still may perceive pain during injections. There are many ways to help decrease discomfort during injections. I have found that using a good topical anesthesia and ice works the best and is the least traumatic for my patients. It seems to be well tolerated and doesn’t leave the patient with the perception that this was a bad experience for them. Giving medicines such as xanax has not be necessary in my practice.
