I used lidocaine patch till my insurance would not cover the cost. They helped. Now to buy lidocaine cream at the drugstore. Not expensive and help s surface pain. It use patches only for deep pain now.
I was given Lidacaine patches, but couldn't tell they helped! Never had a pain patch!!
I asked my doctor this but she didn't seem interested in helping me. I know lidocaine is localized so I would need it in a body wrap size. Lol. My pain is widespread. I have heard people on here mention butran and fentanyl but I have no experience with patches myself. I would like something that circulates through the body, not just one area.
Never used any patches. My mother used to use lidocaine patches with no side effects
