Medical supply: Viscous Lidocaine is obtained from pharmacies or medical supply companies. I would be cautious of using lidocaine, which is a medication that has potential side effects and toxic effects if not used properly. Toxic levels of Lidocaine can cause seizures, heart arrhythmias, and even death.
