Default Procaine vs. Lydocaine

I need some clarification, please, regarding Procaine and Lydocaine. It appears to me that these are different drugs, with differing chemical structures, of the same general class of drugs. Is this the case, or are they in fact, simply different names for the same drug?

Your help is much appreciated.

Thank you,
Ken Winston Caine

Procaine and lidocaine are two different drugs of the same family. the main differences are in onset of action and duration.
