Posology and method of administration

Spray for external and topical use. The dose of the product depends on the indication and the size of the surface to be anesthetized. One pressure on the valve is accompanied by a release of 4.8 mg of lidocaine. To prevent absorption and toxic effects, Lidocaine-DF should be used in minimal doses that provide the necessary pain relief. Usually 1-3 pressings on the valve are enough, but in obstetrics the number of pressings can reach 15-20 (maximum - 40 pressings per 70 kg of body weight).

Recommended doses in various applications:

Field of application Dose (number of times the valve is pressed)
Dentistry 1-3
Dental surgery 1-4
Otorhinolaryngology 1-4
Endoscopy 2-3
Obstetrics 15-20
Gynecology 4-5
Dermatology 1-3

The product can be applied to large surfaces with a moistened gauze swab.

Adverse reactions


  • moderate burning and tingling sensation when applying Lidocaine topically, which disappears as the local anesthetic effect develops (after 1 minute);
  • transient erythema, edema, impaired sensitivity at the site of application.

Very rare:

  • urticaria, angioedema, bronchospasm, and in extremely severe cases - shock (the product should be stopped immediately in case of any hypersensitivity reaction).
  • The frequency of systemic effects after using Lidocaine spray is extremely low because very little of the active product is applied that can enter the bloodstream. The following side effects may be observed in very rare cases if large doses are applied, as well as in case of rapid absorption, hypersensitivity, idiosyncrasy, poor tolerance of the product;
  • symptoms of central nervous system agitation or depression (nervous agitation, dizziness, drowsiness, spasms, loss of consciousness and respiratory paralysis);
  • hypotension, depressed myocardial function, bradycardia, cardiac arrest;
  • bronchospasm, respiratory muscle paralysis, sore throat, hoarse voice.


Symptoms:  cardiovascular and central nervous system dysfunctions described under "Side effects".

Treatment: make sure the airway is clear, and if necessary administer oxygen therapy and/or ventilator assistance. For single spasms, 50-100mg succinylcholine and/or 5-15mg diazepam should be administered as soon as possible. Because succinylcholine can cause respiratory arrest, it should only be used by specialists experienced in tracheal intubation and management of patients with respiratory muscle paralysis. Short-acting barbituric acid derivatives (thiopental sodium) can also be used.  Atropine (0.5-1mg intravenously) and sympathomimetics are used to eliminate cardiovascular symptoms (bradycardia, conduction disorders). Ventricular fibrillation and cardiac arrest require resuscitation.

Use during pregnancy or breastfeeding

Lidocaine-DF spray, can be used during pregnancy, as it is not dangerous in the recommended doses.

Lidocaine is excreted with breast milk, but using it in normal therapeutic doses, the amount excreted with milk is too small to cause any harm to the infant.

Pediatric population

Application to the cheek mucosa is accompanied by a risk of dysphagia and subsequent aspiration, especially in children. If the tongue and cheek mucosa are not sensitive, the risk of biting the tongue and cheek mucosa increases.

Lidocaine is well absorbed through mucous membranes (especially in the trachea) and damaged skin. This should be taken into account, especially when treating large areas of tissue in children.

In children, lower doses should be used according to age and general condition.

In children under 2 years of age, Lidocaine-DF spray is recommended to be applied with a swab soaked in the product.

If the product is used for surgical procedures in the pharynx or nasopharynx, note that lidocaine, by suppressing the pharyngeal reflex and entering the larynx and trachea, suppresses the cough reflex, which may lead to bronchopneumonia. This is especially important in children because they are more likely to have a swallowing reflex. Therefore, Lidocaine-DF spray is not recommended for local anesthesia before tonsillectomy and adenotomy in children under 8 years of age.

Special warnings

When applying the spray, keep the bottle upright.

Avoid getting the spray in the eyes and respiratory tract (risk of aspiration).  Particular caution is required when applying the product to the back of the pharynx.

The product is used with caution in patients with epilepsy, as well as in bradycardia, impaired cardiac conduction, hepatic dysfunction and severe shock, especially when a significant amount of the product can be expected to be absorbed when treating large tissue areas with high doses.

Lidocaine is well absorbed through mucous membranes (especially in the trachea) and damaged skin. This should be taken into account, especially when treating large areas of tissue in children.

Caution is required when applying Lidocaine-DF, spray, if mucosal integrity is compromised and/or on infected areas.

Lower doses should be used in frail and elderly patients, in acute illnesses, and in children, according to age and general condition.

Lidocaine has a porphyrogenic effect, so it can be used only in emergency indications in patients with acute porphyria.

Lidocaine spray should not get on the plastic cuff of the endotracheal tube (PVC/non-PVC), as lidocaine can damage it by forming small holes, which can lead to decreased pressure in the cuff.

The product contains ethanol. The product may modify or intensify the effects of other medicines.

The product contains propylene glycol, which may irritate the mucous membranes or skin.

Effects on ability to drive and use machines

Depending on the dose, in very rare cases, local anesthetics can cause side effects on the nervous system and thus may affect the ability to drive vehicles and operate machinery.
