If you do not experience substantial reduction in your level of pain, even with the maximum safe dosage, you may be in the small minority of individuals whose bodies do not respond to lidocaine treatments; in this case, your physician can work with you to find an effective alternative. Additionally, in very rare instances patients experience symptoms including spikes in blood pressure or signs of toxicity; if this is the case, your transfusion will be discontinued.
Lidocaine infusion is a safe and effective treatment for managing chronic pain conditions with a high rate of success and minimal side effects. Make an appointment with a physician to find out if this treatment is right for you! Be well.
