Xylocaine (lidocaine) solution is an anesthetic. It works by preventing nerves from transmitting painful impulses to the brain. It is used as an injectable numbing agent before having dental work done. It isn't really a dosing issue for the patient. Sometimes you will need to have more, or less, depending on how well it works for you. It's not given to the patient in a pill form, or a dosage. It's on an as needed basis for each different patient.
