The needle must be repositioned until no return of blood can be elicited by aspiration.

Usual precautions for epinephrine administration should be observed.Septocaine® contains sodium metabisulfite, a sulfite that may cause allergic-type reactions including anaphylactic symptoms and life-threatening or less severe asthmatic episodes in certain susceptible people.

The overall prevalence of sulfite sensitivity in the general population is unknown.

Sulfite sensitivity is seen more frequently in asthmatic than in non-asthmatic people.
