What is Lidocaine-Presselin® 1% and what is it used for?
Lidocaine-Presselin® 1% is a topical anesthetic (local anesthetic of acid amide type).
Lidocaine-Presselin® 1% is indicated for intracutaneous use on healthy skin as part of neural therapeutic principles.
Type of application:
Lidocaine-Presselin® 1% is injected into healthy skin (intracutaneously) as part of neural therapy.
Lidocaine-Presselin® 1% should not be used: in case of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the other ingredients mentioned above, to known hypersensitivity to acid amide-type topical anesthetics, severe cardiac conduction disorders, congestive heart failure, cardiogenic or hypovolemic Shock.
Possible side effects:
Like all medicines, this medicine may cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.
The possible side effects after application of Lidocaine-Presselin® 1% are similar to those of other acid amide-type topical anesthetics. Undesirable effects on the whole body can occur at higher blood levels (over 5-10 micrograms of lidocaine per ml) and affect the central nervous and cardiovascular systems. For blood levels generally achieved when used properly, blood pressure is usually only marginally affected by lidocaine Presselin® 1%. A fall in blood pressure can be a first sign of a relative overdose in the sense of a cardiac damaging effect. The triggering of a severe attack of fever (malignant hyperthermia), as with other local anesthetics, also for lidocaine can not be ruled out. In general, however, the use of lidocaine in patients with such a history of the disease is considered safe, even though the occurrence of malignant hyperthermia has been reported in a patient who received lidocaine for epidural anesthesia. Allergic reactions to Lidocaine-Presselin® 1% in the form of itching, swelling of the tissue due to water retention, respiratory tract or respiratory distress syndrome and circulatory reactions are occasionally described.
