How Can I Prevent Myself from Gagging?
16th August 2016
A. The answer to your last question is no. However, it might be that you need IV sedation to get the work done, or something called relative analgesia ( RA ), which suppresses the gag reflex . A tip is to try a bit of de-sensitisation, starting with a small toothbrush placed at the front of your mouth and breathing deeply for as long as you can manage it. If the gag starts then immediately remove it. Then gradually go a bit further in etc. Hope this helps, Jenny.
