WARNINGS In which cases should such a medicinal product not be used (Contraindications)

This medicinal product SHOULD NOT BE USED in case of hypersensitivity (allergy) to local anaesthetics or to any components of its formulation, and in the following situations :

  • severe disorders of the atrio ventricular conduction non assisted by pace-maker
  • epilepsy manifestations not controlled by any treatment,

Usually, this medicinal product SHOULD NOT BE USED in case of treatment with guanethidine and related products (anti-glaucomatous agents), unless medically advised.

Special warnings

THIS PRODUCT CONTAINS 1/100,000 ADRENALINE.

The risk of local necrosis in hypertensive or diabetic patients should be taken into account.

Risk of anesthesiophagia : various biting trauma (lips, cheeks, mucosae, tongue); the patient should be told to avoid chewing-gum or food as long as there is no sensitivity.

This product is not recommended in children under 4 years of age because of the unsuitability of the anaesthetic technique to this age.

Avoid injecting into infected or inflammatory tissues (it minimises the effectiveness of the local anaesthetic).

Precautions for use

The use of this product imperatively requires :

  • a prior inquiry intended to know the patient's diathesis, current therapies and history,
  • to perform a test injection of 5 to 10% of the dose in case of allergic reaction,
  • to inject slowly, making repeated aspiration tests to check that the product is injected strictly out of the blood vessels,
  • to keep verbal contact with the patient.

Monitoring should be increased in patients under anti-coagulants (monitoring of the INR).

Due to the presence of adrenaline, precautions and monitoring should be increased in the following cases:

  • every type of arrhythmias except bradycardias
  • coronary failure
  • severe arterial hypertension

In case of severe hepatic insufficiency, it may be necessary to reduce the dose of articaine since amide type local anaesthetics are mainly metabolised by the liver.

Posology should also be reduced in case of hypoxia, hyperkaliaemia or metabolic acidosis.

Concurrent administration of this anaesthetic with some other medicines (see “interactions with other medicaments”) requires a constant observation of the patient’s clinical and biological state.

Pregnancy - Lactation

This drug should only be used in pregnancy when absolutely necessary. Lactation may be carried on after a local anaesthesia in dentistry.

AS A GENERAL RULE, IT IS ADVISABLE, DURING PREGNANCY AND LACTATION TO ALWAYS REFER TO YOUR DOCTOR OR DENTIST BEFORE TAKING ANY MEDICATION.
