Patients with Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is characterized by widespread chronic pain associated with sleep disturbance, fatigue, and psychological distress; it is a condition that can have a devastating impact on quality of life.
The symptoms occur due to changes in how the brain and spinal cord process signals, causing pain sensations to be amplified.
While fibromyalgia is a difficult condition to manage and is not responsive to many interventions, recent studies have shown that serial lidocaine infusions are effective in managing pain in most individuals.
Doctors consider IV lidocaine infusions to be an excellent treatment option for fibromyalgia patients who are refractory to other treatments.
Patients with Neuropathic Pain
Is neuropathic pain or complex regional pain syndrome adversely affecting your quality of life? In this condition, the expression of sodium channels is modified, which causes an unpleasant feeling of pain.
An intravenous combination of lidocaine and magnesium has been clinically proven to be an effective treatment for reducing the sensation of pain by sodium channel-blocking action.
Lidocaine has some additional modes of action that help treat central and peripheral pain. It contains more potent anti-inflammatory properties than other standard anti-inflammatory medicines.
Patients with Perioperative Pain
An upcoming surgery has enough reasons to make you anxious; you shouldn’t have to worry about unmanageable pain as well.
The use of intravenous lidocaine infusions can reduce or eliminate your perioperative pain effectively. Intravenous local anesthetic infusions can block pain transmission in the spinal cord and reduce the sensation of pain.
Some benefits of using this perioperative pain management process include a speedier return of bowel function after surgery and an earlier release from the hospital.
Patients with Cancer
If you are a cancer patient, you are likely very familiar with chronic pain. Despite advances in cancer treatment, widespread pain continues to be a predominant problem for patients.
Lidocaine infusions have become a very appealing option for cancer pain management due to their low cost, ease of administration, and minimal side effects. In addition, lidocaine can be administered to cancer patients repeatedly as required.
