T41.3: Poisoning: Local anaesthetics

You have been poisoned by a medication used as a local anesthetic.

A local anesthetic involves being given a drug. The purpose of this drug is to temporarily suppress the feeling of pain in a particular part of the body.

A medication can cause poisoning if, for example, too much of it is administered. The medication may also have been administered incorrectly or by mistake.

Poisoning by a medication used as a local anesthetic can affect the heart, for example. Your heart may then beat irregularly, too quickly or too slowly. You may get seizures. You may also feel sleepy or lose consciousness.
