What are the possible side effects of Naropin?

Naropin is given by a professional as a local anesthetic. You will be monitored and treated for serious side effects of Naropin, which require immediate medical attention, including feeling anxious, restless, confused or like you might pass out. Other serious problems include: problems with speech or vision, ringing in your ears, a metallic taste in your mouth, vision problems, numbness or tingling around your mouth or tremors. You will need immediate medical help if you have a seizure or experience weak or shallow breathing, a weak pulse, a slow or fast heart rate or if you are gasping or feeling unusually hot. If any of these serious symptoms occurs following your return home from surgery, call your doctor right away or 911.

Go to the emergency room if you have hives or a skin rash, which may be signs of a serious allergic reaction. Other symptoms of an allergic reaction include: dizziness, sneezing, difficulty breathing, nausea or vomiting, sweating and swelling of your face, lips, tongue or throat.

This drug may also cause side effects that do not require immediate medical attention, such as nausea or vomiting, headaches or back pain, fever, itching, numbness or a tingly feeling and problems with urination or sexual function. Your doctor may suggest ways to alleviate these less serious side effects.
