About Oxethazaine (Oxetacaine)
Local anaesthetic (amide type), Vasoprotective with antacids, antispasmodic.
Mechanism of Action of Oxethazaine (Oxetacaine)
This local anaesthetic (amide type) produces a reversible loss of sensation by preventing or diminishing the conduction of sensory nerve impulses near the site of its application. This also decreases the permeability of the nerve cell membrane to sodium ions (membrane stabilizing effect). In the stomach it increases the pH and neutralizes the gastric acid, which relieves the hyperacidity problems.
