Novocain (also known as  Procaine) is a local anesthetic.

Novocain causes loss of feeling (numbness) of skin and mucous membranes.

Novocain stabilizes the neuronal membrane and prevents the initiation and transmission of nerve impulses, thereby effecting local anesthesia. Novocain lacks surface anesthetic activity.

The onset of action is rapid (2 to 5 minutes) and the duration of action is relatively short      (average 1 to 1½ hours), depending upon the anesthetic technique, the type of block, the concentration, and the individual patient.

Novocain is used as an injection during surgery and other medical and dental procedures.

Novocain acts mainly by being a sodium channel blocker and is used therapeutically in some countries due to its sympatholytic, anti-inflammatory, perfusion enhancing, and mood enhancing effects.
