For some reason, can't go the IV route for wisdom tooth extraction, so Oral sedation is the only option.

Here (in Thailand), they will give only 10mg diazepam and not more. Worried it won't be enough to be calm and more relaxed. Doctor said I could top that with hydroxyzine. Is that something commonly done ?

Thx

Not in the UK, no. I have no experience of using those drugs in that manner, sorry.
