Common Questions and Answers about Viscous lidocaine gargle


Avatar f tn The vast majority of patients say that the worst part is either (1) the i.v., or (2) the numbing gargle medicine (viscous lidocaine). In the past year, I've only had 2 patients say that the TEE itself was worse than the gargle. As far as the patient is concerned, this test is basically the same as an EGD (a scope to look at the stomach). Many more people have this test than a TEE, and it too is a quite safe test. I bring it up because you may have a friend who has had one.

This is the ONLY thing that's helped me over the last 36 weeks. Good luck to you!

Avatar m tn In many cases of tonsillitis, the pain caused by the inflamed tonsils warrants the prescription of topical anesthetics for temporary relief. Viscous lidocaine solutions are often prescribed for this purpose. Ibuprofen or other analgesics can help to decrease the edema and inflammation, which will ease the pain and allow the patient to swallow liquids sooner. Continue with gargling with a solution of warm water and salt to reduce pain and swelling.
