Lidocaine patch 5%

Common Questions and Answers about Lidocaine patch 5%


Avatar n tn Anybody have any experience with them "Lidocaine Patch 5%". It seems to be working and doesnt interfere with my subutex. It's supposed to be a local and not be able to get you high/addicted right?/wrong? I cut them in strips and place them on my Knees and my shoulders that have been wrought with pain during my W/D. Matter of fact its the only problem I've had with W/D while on the subutex.
Avatar n tn Licocaine infusions are not the biggest rocket ship idea because they reduce the irritability of the ventricles and may cause cardiac problems. The new kid in town is the "transdermal 5% lidocaine patch", and it works quite well to relieve pain from spinal nerve compression. Any nerve pain where the nerve site can be identified. You wear the patches (which you cuit with scissors)for no more than 12 hours a day.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn You are supposed to cover the patch with tegaderm as this is a special clear surgical dressing that keeps the patch from coming off. The tegaderm is also used in hospitals to keep an IV needle in place once inserted into hand. Now I bet you know what I am talking about. The tegaderm patches are water proof.

Avatar n tn I am using a lidocaine patch. It is a numbing patch. I ration them though. They do help, but are expensive. There was another patch with an anti-inflammatory in it, but I am taking mobic orally, which helps me more.

Avatar f tn have some Lidoderm patches, which contain 5% Lidocaine, which I have for my fibaro and spine problems. I just got back from Reno, Nv, which was an 1143 mile round trip. The trip down was fine, but the trip back today was in rain, hail, wind and snow. Needless to say now in more pain than ever.

29837 tn?1414538248 Lidoderm (Lidocaine) 5% is in a patch you put on your skin to relieve pain. In my case, back pain. It has a numbing effect. After reading the enclosed info that comes in the box, I called my Gastro, but was unable to reach him. I then called my primary and he said don't use it because of my Hep c. The Hepatologist Dr. Gish said it was okay... Anybody?

182493 tn?1348056515 My pain was so bad I could not even get out of my car at the ER two security guards had to help me out of the car and put me into a bed and then I was rolled straight into the ER where I was taken to observation and waited for an emergency MRI Today is Tuesday two days later and while wearing this patch I feel no pain........ LIDODERM® (Lidocaine Patch 5%) is the only patch approved by the FDA to relieve post-shingles pain.
Avatar f tn After this diagnois is confirmed you need to go to a physical rehab specialist who will, for starters, teach you some exercises that will relieve the pressure. A electrical tens device will sometimes relieve the pain, as well as a transdermal 5% Lidocaine patch, to be used for no more than 12 hours at a time. Eventually you may require a procedure known as a laminectomy. Keep well hydrated, avoid riding in a bouncy vehicle, resolve to always lift properly, and hopefully it will get better.
Avatar f tn ) the patches are prescription only so maybe ask your doctor about them or try over the counter ones like icy hot maybe. Hope these work for you. Goodluck.
Avatar n tn Can a prescribed Lidoderm/ Lidocaine Patch 5% give u a pain pill buzz? Ive watched some of my friends go thru bad DTs and eat patches that were suppose to only be applied. I get Lidoderm Patches and have been keeping it a secret just incase. I don't wanna get robbed cuz they really help with my pain. I need to know if one of them ever find my patch and eat it or use it... will they get any kind of buzz from it?
Avatar f tn My doctor gave me a script for the Lidoderm/Lidocaine 5% patch I tore a disc in L5 S1 they help but I had to take some time off of work......its been a month now and with physical manipualtion with my doctor I am starting to feel much better I hope to hit the linx in another couple of weeks or so..... I take Extra strength Tylenol to make my pain manageable..........
1689696 tn?1305822697 I am currently taking 6/ 5-500 vicodin a day 2 /150mg lyrica and use a 5% lidocaine 12 hour patch for very bad back pain . I want to stop taking the vicodin but when I do I have severe sleep problems and restless leg problems.What is the best way to wean myself off of the vicodin? I have 20 left will the patch help me at night my biggest problem is the restless legs!!
Avatar n tn There are many unanswered questions in your post. The burning and pain may be relieved by a 5% lidocaine transdermal patch overb the area where there is nerve compression for no more than twelve hours a day. Consult yourt primary care physician. Differential diagnosis is not possible based upon the information provided. I suggest a consult with a different physician, preferably a neurologist.
Avatar n tn I use heat, Lidoderm Patch 5% lidocaine on the TMJ area, and Relafen. Don't any single treatment has worked for me. Seems Sumatriptalene Migranes meds help sometimes which is odd.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn Everyone keeps telling me this is normal due to an increased volume at the injection site which is causing inflammation around the nerve. But, I have been on NSAIDs for 5 days and wearing a lidocaine patch on the injection site with no relief. Please help. I am terrified this is permanent. I just feel like no one is listening to how serious this could potentially be.
Avatar n tn I would suggest one final solution before the stimulator. A 5% transdermal lidocaine patch over the area of the spine causing trouble. Wear for no more than 12 hours at a time.
Avatar n tn Vicoden, Toredal, Aleve/Advil. Use homeopathic pain patch for topical relief. Given Lidocaine patch by mistake- am allergic. Pain constant for 2 weeks now. Ideas?
Avatar f tn Ask for a 3T MRI and try physical therapy with another person before you agree to surgery. Try a transdermal lidocaine patch (no more than 12 hours a day) and what is called a TENS device. If these two options have not been discussed by your pain management consultant, find another pain manager.
Avatar n tn The discomfort can be relieved by using 5% lidocaine transdermal patches, available by prescription. Use fior no more than twelve hours at a time. The lidocaine migrates and reduces ventricular sensitivity and very ocasionally cardiac problems, so talk with your doctor. What troubles me is the fact these are pressure related issues and some way should be devised to reduce the pressure on your skin. One way is to sit on an inflatable pad. Another is to sit on bubble wrap.
Avatar n tn , which is undoubtedly a steroid, ask the physician to prescribe a .5% transdermal lidocaine patch. These are fairly new to the market. Cut this with a scissors and place a strip on the cervical area where there is degeneration. Don't keep it there for more than twelve hours. It may or may not relieve the pain, but it's worth a try. The shots will work, but only for a short time. There are no significant side effects to short periods of steroid therapy.
Avatar n tn There is the amino acid protocol and the Thomas recipe, both will help you a lot. How long were you on the patch? I mean if you were only on the patch for a couple of months, then I do not see anything wrong with the way your doctor told you to come off the patch. Did you take something prior to that? What lead you to taking the patch? Good Luck and God Bless I am here for you if you have any other questions and there are a lot of people on this site that you be here for you also.
