1/2 to 1 1/2 hours: Depending on where the Lidocaine is placed, the relative blood flow and the ph level of the tissues can affect how long Lidocaine lasts. It may be necessary to mix Lidocaine with other agents such as Epinephrine which help keep the Lidocaine in the tissue. Mixing it with long acting agents such as Marcaine can also lengthen the time that Lidocaine lasts.

Arthrogram on my shoulder about 4 hours ago. How long does the lidocaine last, what to do?

Depends on agent: If you received Lidocaine alone only an hour so I do not think you received that. Lidocaine with Epinephrine would last 2-3 hours you may have received that drug. If they used Marcaine the duration can go as long as 8 -20 hours. Best to ask the doctor in all likelihood it will wear off in the next few hours then supportive medication should be fine look at what was written in your post care plan.
