Is elmiron (pentosan) a better solution than a lidocaine injection?

Takes longer: Elmiron (pentosan) takes about 3 months to start giving you relief from interstitial cystitis symptoms. Typically the other treatment is bladder instillations with a solution of lidocaine, Heparin and sodium bicarbonate.

Furthermore, cutting off the offending nerve fiber (neurectomy) may be even required for long-term treatment. Remember: Nothing is free but everything always comes with its consequence. ...Read more

What to do if I have lidocaine hci 2% and epinephrine 1:1000,000 injection viles what whould happen if I drank it?

Bad idea: It begs the question as to WHY you would drink it!! A substantial amount of the Lidocaine and Epinephrine would be absorbed into your blood stream very fast through the mucosa of your mouth, throat and esophagus. Your heart would begin to beat rapidly/erratically, your blood pressure would rise, your mouth would get numb. If you drank ENOUGH lidocaine, you would have a seizure and possibly die. ...Read more

I had a lidocaine injection for middle back pain which provided much relief. Forgot to ask how long it will last.
