Felypressin is a non-catecholamine vasoconstrictor that is chemically related to vasopressin (two amino acid substitutions), the posterior pituitary hormone with similar actions. Its antidiuretic effects are less than those of vasopressin. Felypressin is used as a vasoconstrictor in local anesthetic injections for dental use and is an ingredient in preparations that have been used for the treatment of pain and inflammation of the mouth. Felypressin binds to the vasopressin receptor V1a. This causes contraction of the smooth muscle in the vascular bed, especially capillaries, small arterioles and venules (4). Vasoconstrictors have been used for many years with local anaesthetics to produce local hemostasis, to prolong the duration of analgesia and, by reducing the rate of absorption of the local anaesthetic into the blood, to allow a larger dose to be used.
