  • abnormal sensation
  • irritation, or
  • numbness where the medicine is applied
Seek medical attention immediately if you have signs of an allergic reaction after using LidaMantle Cream, such as:
  • hives
  • difficulty breathing, or
  • swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat

Each gram of LidaMantle cream or ml of lotion contains 30 mg Lidocaine HCl. Cream is available as 1 or 3 oz tubes while lotion is available in a 177 ml bottle. LidaMantle is dosed as follows: Apply a thin film to the affected area two or three times daily or as directed by a physician. LidaMantle should be used with caution in ill, elderly, debilitated patients and children who may be more sensitive to the systemic effects of lidocaine. LidaMantle Cream may interact with quinidine, disopyramide, flecainide, mexiletine, procainamide, tocainide, or propafenone. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use. There are no good studies on the effect of LidaMantle on pregnant females; general consideration should be given to this fact before administering lidocaine to women of childbearing potential, especially during early pregnancy when maximum organogenesis takes place. It is not known whether LidaMantle is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when this drug is administered to a nursing mother. Dosage in pediatric patients would be reduced commensurate with age, body weight and physical condition.
