Topicaine is a hydro-ethanolic, non-oily, translucent
microemulsion gel containing lidocaine 4% with skin permeation enhancers and
soothing agents, indicated as a topical anesthetic for use on normal
intact skin for local analgesia.
Each gram of Topicaine contains lidocaine 40 mg in a gel composed
of water, ethanol (35% w/w), glycerin, jojoba oil, aloe vera oil, glyceryl
monolaurate, benzyl alcohol, carbomer 940, EDTA. Topicaine has a pH of 7.5
Topicaine applied to intact skin provides dermal
analgesia by the release of lidocaine from the gel into the epidermis and
dermis. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic agent of the amide type. Local
anesthetics reversibly block the initiation and conduction of nerve impulses by
interfering with the flux of sodium ions though the neuronal membrane. The
onset, depth and duration of dermal analgesia provided by Topicaine� depend
primarily on the site of application and duration of application. Adequate
dermal analgesia is obtained after 1 hour of application, and the effect
persists for approximately 1 hour after removal. Areas such as the upper lip may
be numb after 30 minutes of application. Dermal application of Topicaine� may
cause local blanching followed by local redness or erythema. These effects are
mild and transitory.
Topicaine(lidocaine 4%) is indicated for the temporary relief of
pain and itching. It is a topical analgesic for use on normal
intact skin for local pain
Topicaine is not recommended for use on mucous membranes because
of much greater absorption than through intact skin. Topicaine is not
recommended for use beyond the external ear. Not for ophtalmic use.
For external use only. Avoid contact with the eyes. Do not use
over large areas of the body. Do not use for more than 7 days unless directed by
a doctor. Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children. In case of
accidental ingestion, seek professional assistance or contact a Poison Control
Inappropriate use of this product, such as application on mucous
membranes, on large areas of the body, or on individuals that are allergic to
the amide type anesthetics, may result in serious side effects. Consultation
with a doctor before using this product is strongly recommended.
Repeated doses of Topicaine may increase blood levels of
lidocaine. Avoid contact with the eye since it may cause severe irritation and
loss of protective reflexes. If eye contact occurs, immediately wash out the eye
with water or saline. Patients with severe hepatic disease are at a greater risk
of developing toxic plasma concentrations of lidocaine.
Topicaine should be used with caution in patients receiving Class
I antiarrythmic agents (such as tocainide and mexiletine) since the toxic
effects are additive and potentially synergistic
