Approved and Potential Uses of Dexamethasone-Lidocaine Injection:
Dexamethasone Sodium Phosphate is an immunosuppressant and potent glucocorticoid with little to no mineralocorticoid activity. Its anti-inflammatory effect is achieved by suppression of leukocyte migration, decreased lymphocyte proliferation, reduced capillary permeability, and inhibition of proinflammatory cytokines. Since Dexamethasone is highly soluble and hygroscopic, it has the advantage of rapid action compared to other less soluble steroids, which makes it an excellent choice for acute conditions.
Lidocaine is an aminoethylamide anesthetic agent that inhibits the transmission of pain signals by blocking voltage-gated sodium channels. Lidocaine’s rapid yet short-lasting analgesic effect quickly relieves pain, which may be used to confirm the diagnosis for some rheumatic conditions.
Dexamethasone sodium phosphate, USP 10 mg/mL is intended for intramuscular or intravenous injection. Consider using the ACTIVE Injection Kit – DLM for the following conditions:
