Use:Prilocaine is a local anesthetic of the amino amide type first prepared by Claes Tegner and Nils. In its injectable form (trade name Citanest), it is often used in dentistry. It is also often combined with lidocaine as a topical preparation for dermal anesthesia (lidocaine/prilocaine or EMLA), for treatment of conditions like paresthesia. As it has low cardiac toxicity, it is commonly used for intravenous regional anaesthesia.

Description of Prilocaine:
Prilocaine is local anesthetic used to numb a person’s skin and tissues. This medication is often made available as a cream that is topically applied, but it may also be available in an injectable form, which should always be administered by a specially trained professional. Its effects are not instant, but once a person experiences the associated numbness it may last for hours. During this time, it is important for a person to heed her health care provider’s advice so that she may avoid injuring herself.
Health care providers use prilocaine to dull the feeling in areas where they will administer injections or conduct certain procedures. This medication is considered a local anesthetic because it is generally applied to the area where it is needed. For example, if a dentist were using it, he would likely inject the medication into the gums near the site of his work area.
In addition to its injectable form, this medication is also available as a cream. The cream is applied topically to a specific area. It may require more time to take effect than an injection, and its effects may be more limited. In either case, once the numbness begins it may continue for hours.
