Maxilene cream (lidocaine 4%) is a topical anesthetic for topical use in superficial surgical procedures and needle sticks.
Maxilene has the same indication and patient group as Emla with advantageous product properties that are distinguished by:
Quick pain relief that after 30 minutes is equivalent to Emlas after 60 minutes. (1)
Maxilene is well tolerated where only 2.9% of patients experience skin irritation. (2)
Maxilene is the only product within its ATC code (D04AB01) with this indication and dosage form. FrostPharma has a positive attitude towards the regions that express a desire for additional procurement to the existing range of local anesthetics and thus provide a lower price, safe access and expand the hospital's range with an effective drug. We are happy to provide references from the Children & Youth Clinics in different regions.
