Question:

I am 72 years old and and have been prescribed Actenol by my orthopedic surgeon. I also have serious dental problems and need extensive dental work done. I have read that you should not take Actenol (by the blurb that comes with the meds)if you are going to have dental work done. Are you aware of this problem? Thank you.
