Common Questions and Answers about Lidoderm lidocaine patch 5 cost

lidoderm

I take the Lidoderm Patch 5% (Prescription Only) I get a box every month and share it with my mom. I use it for spinal issues and she uses it for Neuropathy. The Lidoderm patches help her a great deal and me a little. Its worth a try. I guess the cost all depends on your insurance. They are worth a try.
Hi, I'm prescribed a lidoderm 5% patch, which is basically a patch infused with lidocaine. It helps with the nerve/muscle type pain I have in the lower left leg facing outward. By itself, for bad pain it wouldn't be worth the money, but I'm prescribed Lortab 10/650's ( a narcotic ) and the two used together seem to help lower this pain better than either one treatment alone.
I got a prescription for the Lidoderm (Lidocaine Patch 5%) which cost $125 for 30 patched but are very large so I cut it in half, placed it on my shaven arm and within 3-4 minutes had relief! I just woke up from a 45-minute nap and have not been bothered one bit!
4. Lidocaine patches may be an option for patients who want to try them. Lidoderm just lost its patent so they are available in generic now. The neat thing is that they can be cut into smaller pieces that could be applied a little closer to the base of the skull so that may be helpful. Lidocaine (especially taken orally) can cause low blood pressure so monitor for that but the risk is low in the patch formulation 5.
The patch is Lidoderm. It's lidocaine based and does work pretty well from what I've heard. I say give them a try! Can't hurt right?
When I had my MRI, it was noticed that I had a bulging disc between C-4 and C-5 and C-5 and C-6. I am absolutely convinced this is not related to the sun (though I AM a sunworshipper) but is a nerve thing. I was on Lyrica for a while and it helped a little but did not take care of the itching totally. I found out about ice last year and it was a life saver (though it’s not fun to get up in the middle of the night and go sit in one’s family room holding ice packs on one’s arms for 20 minutes!!).
The MRI actually showed 5 discs that were protruding slightly, but on the opposite side! I am at my wits end and noone can figure out what is causing this problem. When I take deep breathes I can feel my shoulder blade pushing up against something - like a muscle/knot. When I rotate my shoulder blade around I can feel it rubbing over the muscle/knots that actually help to massage it. Motrin, aleve, tylenol, nothing over the counter works.
I have been looking everywhere for an answer, maybe someone here can. About 1 year ago I began having pain in my right upper arm, between the shoulder and elbow, about mid arm where the biceps brachii muscle or brachialis muscle is. I went to my Primary Physician who said it was a torn brachialis muscle. Since I was working at a 2nd job, I thought it might be job related so I went through the whole Workman's Comp issue.
