LIDODERM - Lidocain Patch 5%

Amount: Box of 30
Contains: Lidocaine 700mg (50 mg per gram adhesive)
Size: 10cm x14cm
Dosage: Use up to 3 at a time.
Time: 12 hours on, 12 hours off
*I know many that do not wait the 12 hours*

The biggest problem I found wit these patches was keeping them on. I was using them in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar areas. Both the cervical and lumbar areas, the patches didnt stay on that long. I found that cutting them in half or thirds made them stay on better.

Here is the home site for the patches. It contains a lot of good information.
The home site says "Lidocaine patches are effective for shingles, which is nerve related pain."
