Why?: Please re-post your question as to why you want\need it. Self treatment? Experiment? Other? Normally, you have to have a professional license in order to obtain these types of substances from medical\dental supply houses.

More: You need more that a prescription. You need a dental or medical degree and a license from your state to practice any of the healing arts. If you are in pain you probably have a roaring infection and need professional care now.

Reversal Agent: There are really 2 ways you and your dentist, can control to quicken the length of action of local anesthesia. The first is under your control and that is overall metabolism. If you increase your metabolic rate, the Lidocaine will wear off faster. The second, requires a second injection of a reversal agent called "oraverse". There are others also used, but this is the most popular, currently.

Possibly: If you have an untreated heart condition, some anesthetics contain Epinephrine and could result in a racing heart. Make sure to discuss your medical status with treating dentist.
