Lidocaine Medication

Lidocaine has been used in the treatment of Ventricular Tachycardia for nearly 30 years. The Medication Lidocaine is very strong in patients with liver disease. Many patients have an excellent outcome with the administration of Lidocaine Intravenously. However, there are some patients who have seizures as a result.

The Medical Doctors of Atlanta have been advocating the benefits of Amiodarone or Lidocaine. The good thing is patient’s do not have seizures if they are over medicated.Lidocaine is very cost effective in comparison to the administration of Amiodarone.
