Pharmacological properties
It is a local anesthetic. It is an anesthetic of the acid amide type with an average latency period. The effect of the drug is growing rapidly and is expressed by prolonged circulating blockade of sensory, motor and autonomic nerve fibers, the conducting system of the heart. It is assumed that the action of the drug is associated with inhibition of the permeability of the sodium channels of the membranes.
