1. What Lidocaine solution for injection is and what it is used for
Lidocaine Hydrochloride is a local anesthetic and belongs to a class of drugs called amide type local anesthetics. It produces loss of
feeling or sensation confined to one part of the body. Lidocaine solution for injection may be used to produce local numbness
(anesthesia) by injection of the solution into or around the area of operation. It may also be used to produce local anesthesia by injection
of the solution close to the nerves whose conduction is to be cut off, or into the epidural space near the spinal cord, or by administering the
solution into a vein in a limb that has been isolated from the circulation by means of a tourniquet (bandage that stops the flow of blood from
vessel by applying pressure).
2. What you need to know before you are given Lidocaine solution for injection
Do not be given this medicine
• if you know you are allergic to lidocaine hydrochloride, to any of the other ingredients (see section 6 of this leaflet) of this medicine or
to other similar amide type anesthetics.
• if you suffer from state of decreased blood volume (hypovolaemia).
• if you suffer from abnormality of impulse propagation in the heart causing decreased blood pressure, slow heart rate (complete heart
block)
If the solution also contains adrenaline, lidocaine hydrochloride should not be injected into a vein or used in areas such as fingers, toes,
ears, nose or penis, as the blood supply to these areas might become inadequate.
Speak to your doctor if one of these applies to you before you are given this medicine.
Warning and precautions:
• you suffer from any heart problem, particularly if it affects the heart rate.
• you suffer from fits (epilepsy).
• you have low concentration of potassium in the blood causing muscle cramps, constipation (hypokalaemia).
• you ever had an allergic reaction to local anesthetic e.g. a skin rash or breathlessness or collapse.
• you have had recent vomiting, diarrhea or bleeding, or if you have not been drinking normal amounts of fluid.
• you are feeling ill and run down.
• you have been told that you have too much acid in your blood and tissues, or not enough oxygen.
• you suffer from any liver disease or kidney problems.
• you have porphyria (a rare inherited disease that affects the skin and nervous system).
• you have an infection of the skin with pus at or near the site to be injected.
• you have problems with your breathing.
• you are pregnant, likely to become pregnant or breast-feeding.
• you suffer from loss of muscle function and weakness (myasthenia gravis).
Lidocaine solution for injection is not recommended for use in neonates (less than a month old).
Other medicines and Lidocaine solution for injection
Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines.
A large number of drugs can interact with Lidocaine Hydrochloride which can significantly alter their effects. These drugs include:
• medicines used to treat high blood pressure such as diuretics (water tablets), betablockers, e.g. timolol and propranolol and calcium
channel blockers, e.g. verapamil, prenylamine.
• medicines used in the treatment of stomach ulcers (e.g. ranitidine, cimetidine).
• dopamine used to stimulate the heart and to treat shock.
• strong pain relieving medicines such as codeine and pethidine (narcotics or opioid drugs).

If adrenaline (epinephrine) is to be added to your lidocaine injection, you should also tell your doctor if you suffer from high blood
pressure, shortage of blood supply to the brain, an overactive thyroid gland or if you are taking antidepressant drugs. If you are about to
receive a strong anesthetic to put you to sleep, you should tell your doctor if you have already received an injection of lidocaine containing
adrenaline (epinephrine).

machinery you should wait for the effect to wear off. In general, it is wise to ask your doctor whether it is safe to drive.
3. How to be given Lidocaine solution for injection
The site of injection will depend on the area to be numbed. It will be administered by a trained healthcare professional. Your doctor will
decide the most suitable dosage for your particular case according to your age and physical circumstances as well as the site of injection,
the method used and your response to the injection. If you have any concerns or questions about how much of this medicine you have
received, speak to your doctor immediately.
