No such reactions were found, however it would be best to check it with your healthcare provider as meds have different effects on different individuals, please also read: https://www.drugs.com/interactions-check.php?drug_list=1464-0,1944-0.

Provided Novocain is: Procaine Hydrochloride

I found the answer amongst the lecture notes at Stanford. Novocaine is a trade name for Procaine, which is an ester. Lidocaine is an amide, so there should not be a cross reaction. Thanks for your efforts too. H
