The dose of the drug depends on the type of pain relief. Usually, for epidural anesthesia, adults weighing up to 70 kg   are administered in a single dose of 50-100 mg, for caudal anesthesia – 75-150 mg, for peripheral nerve blockade – 25-150 mg.        

A single dose should not exceed 150-175 mg (2 mg per 1 kg of body weight). Reapplication is possible after 3-6 hours, while the daily dose should not exceed 400 mg. Bupivacaine is administered slowly with repeated aspiration to exclude intra-articular administration at the minimum effective dose.

Agitation, anxiety, dizziness, ringing in the ears, visual impairment, tremor, convulsions, depression, drowsiness, coma, respiratory arrest, nausea, vomiting, chills, miosis , suppression of myocardial contractility with a decrease in cardiac output, conduction disturbances, arterial hypotension, bradycardia , ventricular arrhythmia, lactation period.
