It varies: Marcaine is a local anesthetic (numbing medicine) that can be used for spinal or epidural anesthesia, or injected into an area to numb it. Depending on which technique is used, the numbing effect can last for several hours or more. Sometimes it's used in a continuous infusion to provide ongoing pain relief for 2 or 3 days. It stays in your system for a few hours after injection, then wears off. ...Read more
Yes!: It is perfectly safe for someone with a seizure disorder to receive Lidocaine or bupivacaine (marcaine) in the right dose for age and weight. You may have heard that an overdose of these drugs can cause seizures, and that is correct. But it has to be an extreme overdose, given quickly. In the right dose, these drugs are safe and very helpful for numbing, for nerve blocks, or epidurals. ...Read more
Hem ov cyst x8 weeks now on bcp history endo&dor tried aspiration & marcaine still painful how do I convince my dr to just remove it? I know his concerns
Just relax: The size and appearance of the cyst are impotant.If it is indeed a cyst and under> say 8 cm, wo do not remove, we watch...Time, decrease in size and disappearance will be assurring.

Numbness = hours: Marcaine lasts 6-8 hours. Some temporarily altered sensation + laxity of the tissues after this procedure would be expected. Often people are prescribed laxatives which will also increase the chance of some leaking/soiling. If it is happening more than you think it should then can decrease laxative dose +\- a physical examination/review is needed. However, it sounds like it may just settle down. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How often(frequency) can my wife receive celestone/lidocaine/marcaine injection for her sciatica(lumbar foraminal narrowing) and hip bursitis?
Safety: Safe is as few injections as you need to get relief. However if you need these injections regularly, safe is a relative term but typically around 3-4 injections/year. Some patients can have as many as 3 injections per 6 months however that is not a good idea for too long. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Following cortizone type injections(marcaine, kenalog, (triamcinolone) ?) in hip I have pain in both legs - like growing pains. This has happened 3 out of 3 times.?
Pain from injection.: This could simply be irritation of the nerve root, could be a localized reaction to the injection giving you muscle pains. Hard to say without physical exam, but this seems to be an individualized reaction to the injections. If this side effect is too undesirable, i would recommend forgoing any further injections. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

There are none...: Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain. A useful tool, but pain is so necessary for survival that we are not "allowed" to monkey with it much. In acute pain, the transition from miserable to less miserable can be great. In chronic pain, it's just part of the plan. ...Read more
