Actions: Lidocaine Hydrochloride is a potent local anesthetic. Lidocaine provides more intensive and more extensive anesthesia than procaine. The addition of epinephrine prolongs the action and decreases the toxicity by slowing systemic absorption. The onset of mucosal anesthesia appears in about minutes and the affect persists for 30 minutes or more.

Contraindications

Do not inject this product into an area where there is sepsis. Lidocaine is contraindicated in the presence of severe shock, heart block, neurologic disease, spinal deformities, septicemia, and severe hypertension or hypotension. Topical administration is to be avoided on severely traumatized mucosal areas.

Precautions

Overdosage may cause nausea and vomiting, excitement, twitching, convulsions, hypotension or hypertension. In anaphylactic reactions, administer epinephrine. In severe CNS depression, give stimulants and begin artificial respiration if needed. For hypotension, administer vasopressors and support respiration. If hyperexcitability and convulsions occur, give short-acting barbiturates intravenously.

Indications & Dosage: When Lidocaine Hydrochloride is used for infiltration anesthesia, as small a volume as possible should be used. The anesthetic should be injected into the skin and deeper tissues but not at the site of the operation because of the possible delay in healing.
