Lidocaine

Lidocaine is used as a local anesthetic (numbing medication) and results in the blocking nerve signals in your body. Lidocaine is used to relieve pain that occurs after shingles. Lidocaine is also used to reduce pain or discomfort caused by dermal irritations such as sunburn, insect bites, poison ivy, poison oak, minor cuts and scrapes, hemorrhoids, and burns. Lidocaine topical can also be used to treat sores inside the mouth, to numb the gums during a dental procedure, and on the skin for a medical procedure such as getting stiches.

LIDOCAINE MEDICATION


PLEASE NOTE: The following information is intended as a supplement, but not as a substitution for the expertise and judgment of your physician, pharmacist or other healthcare professional. It should not be assumed that use of the drug is safe, appropriate, or effective for your particular condition. Consult your healthcare professional before using this drug.

IMPORTANT: An overdose of Lidocaine can result in fatal side effects if too much lidocaine is absorbed through your skin and into your bloodstream. The probablily of this is higher when using a numbing medicine without the advice of a physician (such as during a cosmetic procedure like laser hair removal). Overdose symptoms may include uneven heartbeats, seizure (convulsions), coma, slowed breathing, or respiratory failure (breathing stops). Your body may absorb more lidocaine if you use too much, if you apply it over large skin areas, or if you apply in conjunction with heat, bandages, or plastic wrap to treated skin areas. Skin that is cut or irritated may also absorb more topical medication than healthy skin.

Apply only the lightest amount of Lidocaine needed to numb the skin or relieve pain. Do not use large amounts of Lidocaine, or cover treated skin areas with a bandage or plastic wrap without medical advice from a doctor. Bear in mind that many cosmetic procedures are performed without a medical doctor present.

LIDOCAINE PATCH - TOPICAL (LYE doe kane TOP i kal)

COMMON BRAND NAME(S): Lidoderm

USES: Lidocaine is used to relieve nerve pain after shingles (herpes zoster virus infection). This type of pain is known as post-herpetic neuralgia. Lidocaine helps to reduce sharp/burning/aching pain as well as discomfort caused by skin areas that are overly sensitive to touch. Lidocaine belongs to a class of drugs known as local anesthetics and works as a temporary loss of feeling in the area where it is applied.

HOW TO USE: Lidocaine should only be used on normal and healthy skin. Do not apply if the dermis is broken or irritated. Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy.

Take away the protective liner and apply the patch to the skin area that is most painful. Apply the prescribed number of Lidocaine patches, usually only once a day for up to 12 hours or as you have been instructed by your physcian. Do not apply more than 3 patches once a day. If a smaller Lidocaine patch is needed, it may be cut with scissors before the liner is removed.

Wash hands thoroughly post-application. Avoid applying Lidocaine in your eyes or mucous membranes (e.g., nose, mouth). If contact with the eyes accidentally occurs, wash your eyes immediately with water until normal feeling returns.

Used Lidocaine patches still contain some medication. However, do not attempt to re-apply them. Fold the used Lidocaine patch with the sticky sides together and discard it out of the reach of children and pets to prevent accidental swallowing or contact.

SIDE EFFECTS: Redness, swelling, blisters, or changes in skin color at the site of application may occur. These effects usually disappear within a few minutes or hours. If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

If irritation or a burning feeling occurs, take the patch off and contact your doctor. Do not reapply until the irritation is gone.

Remember that your doctor has prescribed Lidocaine because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.

Tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: blurred vision, mental/mood changes (e.g., nervousness, confusion), drowsiness, dizziness, unusually slow heartbeat.

A very serious allergic reaction to Lidocaine is unlikely, but seek immediate medical attention if it occurs. Symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include: rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing.

This is not a comprehensive list of possible side effects. If you notice other effects not listed above, report them to your doctor.

PRECAUTIONS: Before using Lidocaine, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to other local anesthetics; or if you have any other allergies. Lidocaine patches may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist for more details.

Before using Lidocaine, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history, especially of: severe liver disease.

While wearing your Lidocaine patch, avoid exposing it to direct heat sources such as heating pads, electric blankets, heat lamps, saunas, hot tubs, heated waterbeds, or prolonged direct sunlight. Heat may cause more drug to be released into your body, increasing the chance of side effects.

Lidocaine should be used only when clearly needed during pregnancy. Discuss the risks and benefits of doing so with your doctor.

Lidocaine passes into breast milk. While there have been no reports of harm to nursing infants, consult your doctor before breast-feeding.

DRUG INTERACTIONS: Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This website does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription or nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval.

OVERDOSE: Lidocaine patches may be harmful if consumed. If overdose or swallowing is suspected, remove the patch if possible, and contact a poison control center or emergency room immediately. Symptoms of overdose may include severe drowsiness, seizures, slowed breathing, slow/fast/irregular heartbeat.

NOTES: When you buy Lidocaine it is prescribed for you only. Do not share Lidocaine patches with other people.

MISSED DOSE: If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule. Do not double the dose to catch up.

STORAGE: Store at room temperature at 77 degrees F (25 degrees C) away from light and moisture. Brief storage between 59-86 degrees F (15-30 degrees C) is permitted. Do not store in the bathroom. Keep the patch sealed in its protective envelope until ready to use. Keep all medicines away from children and pets.

Do not flush medications down the toilet or pour them into a drain unless you've been told to. Properly discard this product when it is expired. Consult your pharmacist or local waste disposal company.
