No Additional Information
Loxicard contains Lignocaine as the active ingredient which is a local anesthetic. It works by blocking pain signals from the nerves to brain to decrease the sensation of pain.
Lignocaine/Lidocaine is an amide type local anaesthatic. It stabilises the neuronal membrane and inhibits Na+ ion movements, which are necessary for conduction of impulses. In the heart, lidocaine reduces depolarisation of the ventricles during diastole and automaticity in the His-Purkinje system. Duration of action potential and effective refractory period are also reduced.
Loxicard is used for local anesthesia and arrhythmias.

Common Side Effect of Loxicard is Injection site reactions (pain, swelling, redness).
