What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before using lidocaine viscous (Xylocaine Viscous)?
An overdose of numbing medications can cause fatal side effects if too much of the medicine is absorbed through your skin and into your blood. This is more likely to occur when using a numbing medicine without the advice of a medical doctor (such as during a cosmetic procedure like laser hair removal). Overdose symptoms may include uneven heartbeats, seizure (convulsions), coma, slowed breathing, or respiratory failure (breathing stops).
Do not use lidocaine viscous if you are allergic to any other type of numbing medicine.
Before using lidocaine viscous, tell your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs, or if you have liver disease, or broken, swollen, or damaged skin or gum tissue. You may not be able to use lidocaine viscous, or you may need dosage adjustments or special tests during treatment.
FDA pregnancy category B. This medication is not expected to be harmful to an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment.
Lidocaine viscous can pass into breast milk but it is not likely to harm a nursing baby. However, you should not use this medication without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.
