Procaine benzylpenicillin, also known as penicillin G procaine, is an injectable antibiotic. It is a poorly-soluble salt form of penicillin which is a combination of naturally occurring benzylpenicillin (penicillin G) and the local anesthetic agent procaine, in equimolar amounts. Procaine benzylpenicillin is administered by deep intramuscular injection. It is slowly absorbed and hydrolyzed to benzylpenicillin. This drug is used where prolonged exposure to benzylpenicillin at a low concentration is required. This combination is aimed at reducing the pain and discomfort associated with a large intramuscular injection of penicillin. It is widely used in veterinary settings. Benzylpenicillin is active against a wide range of organisms and is the drug of first choice for many infections. Procaine benzylpenicillin is indicated for the treatment of a number of bacterial infections such as syphilis, anthrax, mouth infections, pneumonia and diphtheria.
