Mepivacaine is a local anesthetic that is chemically related to bupivacaine but pharmacologically related to lidocaine. It is indicated for infiltration, nerve block, and epidural anesthesia and anesthesia by local infiltration, peripheral nerve block techniques. Mepivacaine is effective topically only in large doses and therefore should not be used by this route.
