What is a Lidocaine Infusion?

Lidocaine is a common local anesthetic that can be administered by IV infusion to treat and relieve chronic pain. By slowly administering IV lidocaine intravenously, its mechanism of action is different than when it is directly injected into tissue. When administered intravenously, lidocaine has been shown to be effective in modulating and dampening pain responses in those who suffer from chronic pain conditions.

Who is a candidate for a Lidocaine Infusion?

Lidocaine infusions can be used for many different forms of chronic pain, including but not limited to neuropathic pain, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and fibromyalgia. Each patient is unique and requires a tailored IV lidocaine infusion. During your first visit, your physician will review your complete medical history, as well as perform a physical examination to ensure you are an appropriate candidate.

How is a Lidocaine Infusion performed?

During your lidocaine infusion an IV is placed in your arm or hand and the medication is slowly infused over 45 minutes to 1 hour. Patient’s will have a baseline set of vitals taken prior to the start of their infusion and anti-anxiety and/or anti-nausea medications may be administered as well. Throughout the duration of your infusion, one of our medical assistants will frequently check up on you to ensure that you are not having any side effects and tolerating the infusion. Once your infusion is complete you will be monitored prior to being discharged. IV lidocaine infusions can be repeated as directed by your physician.
