Side Effects of Lidocaine Midvale UT

The most common adverse effect of lidocaine is central nervous system (CNS) toxicity. The symptoms are usually mild, dose-dependent, and always resolve with a decrease in the infusion rate or discontinuation of the drug. These side effects may be particularly frequent in the elderly or in those with heart failure, settings in which CNS levels are increased due to a reduced volume of distribution, and in patients with significant liver impairment in whom the metabolism of lidocaine is reduced.

INTRODUCTION TO LIDOCAINE

Lidocaine is a substance administered intravenous in the treatment of ventricular arrhythmias, is generally very well tolerated. The major side effects primarily involve the central nervous system, the cardiovascular system, and the gastrointestinal tract.
