Overdose: Local anaesthetics may have systemic adverse effects as a result of the raised plasma concentrations which occur when the rate of absorption exceeds the rate of breakdown. Toxicity causes excitation of the central nervous system, which may be followed by systemic depression leading to coma. Convulsions may be controlled with diazepam.

Lignol is a local anaesthetic containing lignocaine/lidocaine hydrochloride (2.0 %) and adrenaline/epinephrine (0.001 %). Lignocaine/lidocaine hydrochloride produces local anaesthesia with a shorter period of onset, a more intense action and a longer duration than is achieved with procaine hydrochloride (Willcain®).
The inclusion of adrenaline produces a local vasoconstriction of the capillaries which delays absorption from the site of injection and also helps control haemorrhage.
