Due to chronic pain, I have been using this patch for several weeks now, and it has helped me tremendously deal witht he never ending pain I deal with day in and day out. In the past I have had injections to relieve pain, and I was sceptical about this treatment but it works for me.

I have intense pain in the C5-C7 region and the lidoderm patch helped to dull the pain to a managable level. Don't expect it to remove all pain, it won't do that, but it will give you relief enough to feel human again.

This has really helped me but the cost is killing me. My insurance only pays for generic drugs and this doesn't fit.

I use patches for tendonitis and arthritis in various locations. One way to prevent patches from rolling up on edges is to use elastic surgical tape. The brand I use is called Elastikon (made by Johnson anb Johnson) and you can get it at most pharmacy's. It's flexible, never rolls up off of skin, and firmly holds the patches in place. I've also used this tape for holding bandaids in place.

The patch helped the pain along with other medication for my back and hip, due to a car accident. Overall, I think it worked pretty well.

In my 50's, my knees are giving me a lot of trouble. I thought it was something torn,or maybe arthritus.Something internal. It seems the 5% lidoderm patch worked wonders.I can get up and down without the pain I was having. If this is supposed to be for topical applications only, I wonder why it works into my knee.
