Q. Is Oculan injection painful?

No, Oculan injection does not cause pain except when it is given as spinal anesthesia. Oculan usually relieves pain in conditions like neuropathic pain and pain occurring after surgery.

Q. Who should not be given Oculan?

Oculan should not be given to patients who are allergic to it, have decreased blood volume (hypovolemia), or complete heart block. If the solution also contains adrenaline, it should not be injected into a vein or used in areas such as fingers, toes, ears, nose or penis, as the blood supply to these areas may not be sufficient.

Q. Can Oculan be abused?

No, abuse of Oculan has not been observed yet. There are very rare reports of Oculan injection causing any euphoric effect. However, Oculan may cause some psychotic reactions such as fear from death, doom anxiety, and delirium. These are short-lasting and generally disappear after the effect of injection is over.
