We would like to thank Dr Hendrickson et al for their interest in our work and writing about their opinion. We agree with the comment that mixing local anesthetics might make individual safe doses unknown, so maximum recommended doses of each local anesthetic should not be used. There are no human studies but it can be presumed to be additive based on some animal studies.
