How To Use

How to use Xylocaine Spray

  • Xylocaine Spray will usually be given to you by a doctor or dentist. The dose that your doctor or dentist gives you will depend on the type of pain relief that you need. It will also depend on your age and physical condition.
  • Xylocaine spray is given using the nozzle supplied in the pack. Extra nozzles are also available separately in boxes of 50. Nozzles are single use only. The nozzles should not be re-used and should be disposed of immediately after use.
  • Appropriate measures should be undertaken to avoid cross contamination in a healthcare setting including undertaking hand hygiene prior to use, use of disposable gloves during administration, keeping the box of 50 nozzles closed between procedures and ensuring disposal of each nozzle after use.
  • If you are given Xylocaine Spray to take home, you must use the dose recommended by your doctor or dentist. Always use Xylocaine Spray exactly as your doctor or dentist has told you. You should check with them if you are not sure.
  • Do not use more than 20 sprays in any single procedure.
  • You should use as few sprays as possible.
  • Do not get the spray in your eyes.
  • The spray nozzle is bent so that it works properly. Do not try to change the shape of the nozzle or it might break.

How to use Xylocaine Spray in the mouth and throat

  • Take care when eating or drinking following application of Xylocaine spray to the mouth or throat. When Xylocaine Spray is used in the mouth and throat it causes a loss of feeling. This makes it more likely that food or liquid may go down the wrong way. Also, this may make it difficult to swallow or cause some people to accidentally bite their tongue or cheek.
  • Xylocaine Spray should be used with care in older people, in people who are in poor general health and in children.
