Anesthetic Overview

An anesthetic (or anaesthetic) is a drug to prevent pain during surgery. A wide variety of drugs are used in modern anesthetic practice. Many are rarely used outside anesthesia, although others are used commonly by all disciplines. Anesthetics are categorized into two classes: general anesthetics, which cause a reversible loss of consciousness, and local anesthetics, which cause a reversible loss of sensation for a limited region of the body while maintaining consciousness. Combinations of an...

keto baclo cyclo lido gaba cream

Can this topical cream affect your sleeping cycle??? Can it make you sleep a heavy sleep? ## Hello, JoAnn! How are you? No, it shouldn't. The medications may cause drowsiness as side effects, but you only absorb a little of them, when using them topically, so it shouldn't cause a deep, heavy sleep. For that to happen, someone would basically have to almost bathe in it. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thanks so much. Can it be addictive? ## Hello, I just received a topical Cream Keta/Cyclo/GABA/Lido (10%/2%/6%/3.5%). I was told to put it in all places where I am experiencing pain and on the bottle it says: Apply 3 times daily for pain and/or muscle spasms as needed. *** PLEASE HELP ANYONE!!! *** I suffer from extreme nerve pain in my back. It affects the left side more...

ketamine medication

used for pain ## No. This is used mostly in veterinary practices and would most likely kill you... Ketamine has a high chance of respiratory failure and death ## I have used ketamine for rheumatoid arthritis many many time for joint pain. Don't tell people it will kill them, if you have no experience with the drug. Ketamine is an amazing drug and can help many people in quite a few ways. ## Ketamine is not amazing for everyone, since we are all different, and may react to it differently. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, sedation, weight changes, and mood changes. Is there anything I can help with? ## I'll just add that Ketamine is known to cause a dissociative state or "trance...

Lidocaine causing urinary difficulty

My doctor said I have to avoid all opioids and narcotics due to problems urinating. Recently I increased the amount of lidocaine cream that I use for pain control on my feet, and have had difficulty urinating. Can there be a cause and effect, or is it just coincidence? ## When used topically, according to FDA reports, you usually don't absorb enough for it to cause many internal side effects, usually they are just topical side effects that can include skin redness, irritation, and flaking. If you've been having problems urinating, it could just be another flare up of that, though it is hard to say, and only your care provider can give you a definitive answer. Are you male? If so, have you had a recent prostate check? Prostate enlargement is a frequent issue that causes urinary p...

Butesin Picrate - compounding

Hello. I'm from Australia and had been sorry to learn that Butesin Picrate cream was removed from commercial sale. My daughter (a registered pharmacist with Pharmaceutical Compounding exp.) recently suffered burns while she was home cooking: I said my "often quoted regret" about the cream's discontinuation. We have - between us - located the original (1%) pharmaceutical compounding instructions for it and provided it's not large scale manufacture I can arrange to put you in touch with the compounding pharmacy - only in limited supply for individuals though (like many of us who grew up with this cream in our mothers' first aid boxes!). One ingredient (apparently) had cancer-causing discussions at scientific circles... and that's part of the PR disaster that pr...

Keto Lido Cream

Will this med help with lower back pain, because when I put it on it is not hot? It remains cold... ## Hello, Karen! How are you? There is nothing in this to make it heat up, though some over the counter products like IcyHot do, it isn't necessary to actually relieve pain. Additionally, those products don't actually heat up, anyway, they only stimulate nerve receptors to make it feel as though they do. Is it helping you? ## Hello. My Dr gave. me a compound that consisted of Keto 10%- Amit 3%- Ga 6%- and emla cre #150 and it helps. He gave it to me for my back but I have also used it on my knees, stomach, shoulders and hips, but your Dr has to call it in. Hope this helps. ## I'm supposed to rub a pea-sized amount of Keto/Dex/Lido on the irritation on my back (3 times daily). ...

Burning sensation in using lidocaine ointment

I had my colon removed, now I have this burning sensation after each bowel movement. After each movement I apply Lidocaine for relief but it burns worse and won't cease until I remove it. When I was using the lower % 2.5, that worked but had to use a lot for relief. I tried the 5% at the diva office and it worked fine but doesn't now. ...why? ## Do have any more details on it, such as the ingredients, or the manufacturer? That would give me the information needed to research this for you. It is possible that you are just sensitive to some ingredient in that dosage, the FDA does warn that skin burning, and irritation can be side effects, along with redness, and scaling skin. At the office they may have had one made by a different manufacture, your pharmacy might have provided you...

liguid pink in color. it nums my throat all the way down ## While I can't speak as to what's in the specific one you are asking about, most of these contain Lidocaine, which is a topical anesthetic, which can cause such numbness as a side effect, according to FDA reports. Other side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, headache, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I was given pink magic cause of heart burn it has mylanta , lidocaine, benadryl when I ask pharmacist.
