Lurocaine Cautions

Avoid intravascular injection. Injection should be made immediately after withdrawal from the bottle since it can react with the metallic components of the syringe. Overdosage may result in adverse reactions. Do not use pentylene tetrazole as an antidote. Transient drowsiness may occur in animals receiving large doses of lidocaine. Barbiturates are antidotal. Spinal anaesthesia in dogs may predispose them to shock.

Warnings
