Prilocaine Hydrochloride is an FDA approved amino amide type local anesthetic. It is primarily used as a nerve block in dental surgery in the injectable form. This drug is also used in topical anesthetic creams. It’s often combined with Lidocaine. However, Prilocaine is less toxic and causes less vasodilation than Lidocaine.
As a topical anesthetic, Prilocaine combined with Lidocaine deadens the nerve endings in the skin. It can safely be used on mucous membranes including genital areas. It’s also safe for pediatric use.
Pharmaceutica North America provides Prilocaine as a Bulk Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API). The purity and strength of API’s ensure that you are providing your patients with a stable, safe medication of the highest standards.
