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

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?

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
Yes: Yes, Zyrtec (cetirizine) can become ineffective after a while. Zyrtec (cetirizine) tends to block histamine responses; however, the immune system diversifies with time and sends additional signals to respond to allergy (develops an adaptive response with IgE antibodies, B cells, T cells, etc). Once this occurs, antihistamines only block a subset of the allergic immune response. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Various Options: Daily steroid or antihistamines nasal sprays (fluticasone, azelastine) are helpful.
