We would suggest calling the facility and asking to speak with a lieutenant or counselor to "ask politely and respectfully" if they are aware of the medication your husband must remain on. Using a very humble tone, seek out your information and you will easily get there. Caution, don't "demand" anything, ask nicely, use please and thank you.

The prisons get a bad rap as it relates to care and compassion. They give the minimum requisite attention, mindful that it's not the top tier care, but it is realistic and humane considering it is paid for by the government.

There are limited medical and dental recourses in the state prison system. Dental emergencies are largely remedied by pulling the tooth/teeth affected, not mending them.
