Dosage/Direction for Use
It is applied exclusively by a doctor or a healthcare professional.
The dose is adjusted individually.
The following dosage information serves as a guideline, the doctor's experience and the knowledge of the patient's physical state are important for the calculation of the suitable dosage.
The extent of absorption is especially high in the bronchial tree.
Application in the urethra before introducing a catheter, endoscope or other medical instruments: The collapsible syringes (hereinafter referred to as "syringes") contain 12.5 g gel each, of which approx. 10 g are introduced in the urethra during introduction (instillation).
Posology: Adult males: In general, the 12.5 g syringes are required for men in order to fill the urethra sufficiently. The content of a syringe is enough, more than one syringe should not be used. The effect sets in after 5 - 10 minutes and continues for approx. 20-30 minutes.
Women, children (aged 2 - 12 years) and adolescents (under 18 years of age): The effect of Cathejell is not documented that well, therefore a doctor should decide whether it is necessary to use it.
For these groups of patients, no specific dosage recommendations can be given, but in general, the quantity of gel to be introduced is to be adapted to the individual, anatomic conditions of the urethra.
In children, the absorption of Lignocaine through the mucous membranes in the organism may be increased, and so caution should be exercised. The maximum dose of 2.9 mg/kg BW Lignocaine hydrochloride should not be exceeded in children (aged 2 - 12 years).
Children under 2 years of age: Cathejell must not be used on children under the age of 2 years.
Dosage recommendations for high-risk patients: In elderly, weak or acutely sick patients as well as patients with impaired liver function or severe renal dysfunction, the dosage is to be adjusted accordingly.

Method of administration: For use in the urethra.
