  • Anyone having problems getting 50 ml lidocaine 1%

    I went for the heparin/lido instill today. I hardly go anymore and part of the reason is the lidocaine is on back order still. I'm using what I have left. Doctor can't get any of it too. They 4 companies the lidocaine comes from gives no reason for why it is on back order.

    Yes, it is still on backorder according to the FDA database -

    The manufacturer B. Braun says that it is due to unanticipated demand for the product as well as a manufacturing delay. I BET you that they are using more of it now topically and in other ways to reduce the pain of people who have been forced off of their opioid medication. Betcha!

      Thanks for letting me know. I found out they can get Lidocaine 2% but it's a thicker liquid and I coudln't use it as an instill so you might be right on that Jill. Ugh...................the one and only thing that helped my IC and I can't get it now.
