I'm doing a medicines management module as part of my degree and I need to do a presentation about a drug. I've chosen Lidocaine Hydrochloride using the BNF but I'm getting really confused by literature that seems to use lidocaine and lidocaine hydrochloride interchangeably.
The BNF doesn't have a page for just Lidocaine so I assume that they're the same?
Are Lidocaine and Lidocaine Hydrochloride the exact same? Or are they different? And if they're different please could somebody explain. Thanks so much!
