Pramoxine Hydrochloride is a topical anesthetic and used as an antipruritic too. Chemical name is p-n butoxyphenyl gammamorpholinopropyl ether hydrochloride. During research, Pramoxine Hydrochloride stood out among a series of alkoxy aryl alkamine ethers as an especially great topical local anesthetic agent. Pharmacologic study revealed Pramoxine Hydrochloride to be very potent and of low acute toxicity, well tolerated by most mucous membranes and of a low sensitizing index. Pramoxine Hydrochloride reduces the permeability of neuronal membranes to sodium ions, blocking initiation and conduction of nerve impulse. Depolarization and repolarization of excitable neural membranes is thus inhibited by Pramoxine Hydrochloride, leading to the numb sensation.
