Instillagel is used when putting a tube or instrument into a body cavity. It contains a local anaesthetic to prevent pain and antiseptics to reduce the risk of infection. It also provides lubrication to ease this process.
The gel is available in two sizes - 6ml and 11ml. Usually the complete contents of the size suitable for the procedure will be used. The syringe is removed from its sterile package by tearing off the backing paper. Before removing the blue cap from the end of the syringe, free the plunger by gently pressing it. Remove the cap. Insert the nozzle into the opening of the area to be anaesthetised and press the plunger slowly to push out the gel. The anaesthetic takes about 5 minutes to work after the gel has been used.
The gel should not be used after the expiry date shown on the package. Instillagel does not require any special storage conditions. The syringe is for single use only. If the complete contents are not used, the syringe and remaining gel must be thrown away. As with all medicines, keep Instillagel away from children.
Do not use Instillagel: If you are allergic (hypersensitive) to lidocaine, chlorhexidine, methyl hydroxybenzoate, propyl hydrobenzonate or any of other ingredients of Instillagel. If the moist lining of the application site is damaged or bleeding. Care should be taken when using Instillagel. If you have heart problems. If you have liver problems. If you are epileptic. Tell the person preparing to use the gel if you are pregnant or think you might be pregnant. You can continue to breast-feed.
