Introduction to Themicaine 2% Injection

Themicaine 2% Injection is a local anesthetic drug in the class ib antiarrhythmic agent category containing the active ingredient Lidocaine. It is a medication commonly used as a local anesthetic to numb a specific body area before minor surgical procedures, dental work, or diagnostic tests. It is administered as an injection, spray, or topical application to relieve pain and reduce discomfort during these procedures. It is also administered epidurally (into the epidural space of the spinal cord) to provide anesthesia and act as a pain reliever during childbirth. This drug is commonly used in emergencies to treat ventricular arrhythmias, particularly ventricular fibrillation.

Avoiding this product if you have a known allergy to this drug or any other local anesthetics is important. This drug should not be given if you have an abnormality of impulse propagation in the heart that causes decreased blood pressure and slow heart rate, such as complete heart block, because it can affect the electrical conduction in the heart and may exacerbate these conditions. Themicaine 2% Injection should not be administered if you have a condition of decreased blood volume called hypovolaemia. This condition can interfere with the distribution and effectiveness of the medication.

When Themicaine 2% Injection is combined with adrenaline (epinephrine), it should not be administered into a vein or used in areas with limited blood supply, such as fingers, toes, ears, nose, or penis, because it can lead to vasoconstriction throughout the body by causing inadequate blood flow to the organs. Inform your doctor about any pre-existing medical conditions, especially those related to the heart, liver, or kidneys. This medicine may require dose adjustments or close monitoring in individuals with certain medical conditions.
