Precaution for Use
Lidocaine and Prilocaine cream (lidocaine 2.5% and prilocaine 2.5%) is contraindicated in patients with a known history of sensitivity to local anesthetics of the amide type or to any other component of the product.
2. Special precaution for use
Labor and Delivery: Neither lidocaine nor prilocaine are contraindicated in labor and delivery. Should Lidocaine and Prilocaine cream be used concomitantly with other products containing lidocaine and/or prilocaine, cumulative doses from all formulations must be considered.
Nursing Mothers: Lidocaine, and probably prilocaine, are excreted in human milk. Therefore, caution should be exercised when Lidocaine and Prilocaine cream is administered to a nursing mother since the milk:plasma ratio of lidocaine is 0.4 and is not determined for prilocaine.
Pediatric Use: Controlled studies of Lidocaine and Prilocaine cream in children under the age of seven years have shown less overall benefit than in older children or adults. These results illustrate the importance of emotional and psychological support of younger children undergoing medical or surgical procedures.
Lidocaine and Prilocaine cream should be used with care in patients with conditions or therapy associated with methemoglobinemia.
3. General precautions
Repeated dose of Lidocaine and Prilocaine cream may increase blood levels of Lidocaine and Prilocaine. Lidocaine and Prilocaine cream should be used with caution in patients who may be more sensitive to the systemic effects of Lidocaine and Prilocaine including acutely ill, debilitated, or elderly patients.
Lidocaine and Prilocaine cream should not be applied to open wounds.
Care should be taken not to allow Lidocaine and Prilocaine cream to come in contact with the aye because animal studies have demonstrated severe eye irritation. Also the loss of protective reflexes can permit corneal irritation and potential abrasion. Absorption of Lidocaine and Prilocaine cream in conjunctival tissues has not been determined. If eye contact occurs, immediately wash out the eye with water or saline and protect the eye until sensation returns.
Patients allergic to paraminobenzoic acid derivatives (procaine, tetracaine, benzocaine, etc.) have not shown cross sensitivity to lidocaine and/or prilocaine, however, Lidocaine and Prilocaine cream should be used with caution in patients with a history of drug sensitivities, especially if the etiologic agent is uncertain.
Lidocaine and Priloocaine have been shown to inhibit viral bacterial growth. The effect of Lidocaine and Prilocaine cream on intradermal injections of live vaccines has not been determined.
