►  Drug Interaction : Drug interaction of Benzocaine is with anticholinesterases, Aminosalicylic Acid, Sulfonamide , Tricyclic antidepressants, , , ,  Phenoxybenzamine , Suxamethonium chloride,
Ref :-   Book : Martindale    Page : 2013   Edition : 37,


  ►    Mechanism of Drug Drug Interaction :  The metabolism of ester-type local anaesthetics may be inhibited by anticholinesterases, increasing the risk of systemic toxicity. Ester derivatives such as tetracaine, benzocaine, or procaine that are hydrolysed to para-aminobenzoic acid may antagonise the activity of aminosalicylic acid or sulfonamides. Ester-type local anaesthetics such as procaine and cocaine that are hydrolysed by plasma cholinesterase may competitively enhance the neuromuscular blocking activity of suxamethonium. If local anaesthetics containing adrenaline are given for epidural or paracervical block during labour the use of an oxytocic drug post partum may lead to severe hypertension. Although there is no clinical evidence of dangerous interactions between adrenaline-containing local anaesthetics and MAOIs or tricyclic antidepressants, great care should nevertheless be taken to avoid inadvertent intravenous doses of the local anaesthetic preparation.,

►  Contraindication : Complete heart block, history of hypersensitivity reactions, Low plasma-cholinesterase concentration, epidural or spinal block should not be used in patients with cerebrospinal diseases, cardiogenic or hypovolaemic shock, or altered coagulation status, and where there is pyogenic infection of the skin at or adjacent to the injection site., application of local anaesthetics to the skin for prolonged periods or to extensive areas should be avoided, should not be instilled into the middle ear,

  ►  Mechanism of Action :   Benzocaine, a para-aminobenzoic acid ester is a local anaesthetic act by preventing the generation and transmission of impulses along nerve fibres and at nerve endings; depolarisation and ion-exchange are inhibited. ,
