Treatment to Help Relieve Pain
Lidocaine Patch 5%
Lidocaine Patch 5% is comprised of an adhesive material which is applied to a non-woven polyester felt backing and a polyethylene terephthalate (PET) film release liner. The release liner is removed prior to application to the skin. The size of the patch is 10cm x 14cm.
Lidocaine Patch 5% is an amide-type local anesthetic agent, suggested to stabilize neuronal membranes by inhibiting the ionic fluxes required for the initiation and conduction of nerve impulses. Lidocaine Patch 5% is indicated for relief of pain associated with post-herpetic neuralgia. Each adhesive patch contains 700 mg of lidocaine. Be sure to apply the prescribed number of patches (maximum of 3x per day), to intact skin, for up to 12-hours within a 24-hour period.
- Lidocaine Patch 5% is indicated for relief of pain associated with post-herpetic neuralgia. It should be applied only to intact skin.
- Lidocaine Patch 5% may be cut into smaller sizes with scissors prior to the removal of the release liner.
- Clothing may be worn over the area of application. Smaller areas of treatment are recommended for a debilitated patient, or a patient with impaired elimination.
- The absorption of lidocaine into intact skin after application of a Lidocaine Patch 5% is sufficient to produce an analgesic effect, but less than the amount necessary to produce a complete sensory block.
