Sensorcaine-MPF (bupivacaine) "I went to ER for a scalp laceration that required stitches. The ER doctor used sensorcaine to numb the area before suturing. I started feeling sick like the energy was draining out of me. He began the stitches but didn't get to finish before I totally passed out. Doc said I was "snoring up a storm" which meant I was having trouble breathing. Took a couple off hours to be able to get off the bed afterwards. Awful experience!"

Sensorcaine-MPF (bupivacaine) "I'm allergic to most -caines and Sensorcaine MPF makes it possible for me to be able to get dental work done without fear of an allergic reaction or having to be on a steroid regiment prior to having dental work done. Since being tested, it has been a wonderful find since not only have I had to have dental work done but also have had to have stitches and other medical procedures which required local numbing."

Marcaine (bupivacaine) "This drug was used as a local before breast biopsy. The instant it entered my body I felt extreme burning and it continued several minutes. The biopsy was almost done before the burning stopped. I have NEVER hurt so bad in my life, and that includes natural childbirth and an episiotomy done without benefit of anesthesia. The burn was so bad that I couldn't stop shaking and crying. Five days later and I am still numb in my breast."

"Was given a shot of this bupivacaine which I call the goodstuff it works great for dental extractions that can be extremely painful such as Molar extractions or partial boney or full boney extractions. Because the numbness can last 7-15 -/+ hours. You should get at least 7 hours of numbness outta it however. Works great for short term dental use."

Marcaine (bupivacaine) "I had a severe case of hidradenitis, which had to be excised. The surgeon used this when closing to lessen the pain afterwards. It worked very well."
