Lidocaine Patch Make You Positive For Morphine

I used a Lidocaine patch - can it make me come up positive for Morphine on a urine test? ## No, Lidocaine isn't listed as being known to cause a false positive for anything. Did this happen to you? High doses of it have been known to cause a false positive for Cocaine, since they are distantly related, but you usually don't absorb enough from the patch to have it be detected as anything. ## Well which is it? Lidocaine does not cause a false positive for anything... or High doses have been known to cause false positives for Cocaine? You are contradicting yourself and therefore not looking to credible to me. If Lidocaine has been known to cause a false positive for Cocaine, at any dosage, you should state that and leave it at that. ## I WAS TESTED POSTIVE FOR MORPHINE I NEVER HAVE...

Need help for Post Herpetic Neuralgia

Anyone know of a cream or compounded ointment for relief of severe pain from post herpetic neuralgia? I’ve suffered with this for 21 years now, down back of leg and around ankle and foot. I’m so tired of fighting the pain. I take gabapentin, tramadol, and amytriptline which help some, but the pain is alway there, stabbing and burning, making it difficult to wear clothing. This is so depressing I don’t even want to leave the house anymore. ## Hello, Patti! I am so sorry about what you're dealing with, that's horrible. Unfortunately, I don't know of any specific cream, or compounded cream that I can recommend, but you might want to ask your doctor about prescribing Lidocaine patches, or a compounded cream with Lidocaine in it, since it is a topical anesthetic...

ER Magic Mouthwash Morton Grv

Liquid, pink in color. it numbs my throat all the way down. ## While I can't speak as to what's in the specific one you are asking about, most of these contain Lidocaine, which is a topical anesthetic, which can cause such numbness as a side effect, according to FDA reports. Other side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, headache, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I was given pink magic cause of heart burn. It has mylanta, lidocaine, & benadryl when I asked the pharmacist. ## This medicine is helping my tongue but not my throat. However, I'm not swallowing the mouthwash, I'm spitting it out. The medication is Magic Mouthwash from Morton Grv. I want to know if it can harm me to swallow it?

keto baclo cyclo lido gaba cream

Can this topical cream affect your sleeping cycle??? Can it make you sleep a heavy sleep? ## Hello, JoAnn! How are you? No, it shouldn't. The medications may cause drowsiness as side effects, but you only absorb a little of them, when using them topically, so it shouldn't cause a deep, heavy sleep. For that to happen, someone would basically have to almost bathe in it. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thanks so much. Can it be addictive? ## Hello, I just received a topical Cream Keta/Cyclo/GABA/Lido (10%/2%/6%/3.5%). I was told to put it in all places where I am experiencing pain and on the bottle it says: Apply 3 times daily for pain and/or muscle spasms as needed. *** PLEASE HELP ANYONE!!! *** I suffer from extreme nerve pain in my back. It affects the left side more...

Lidocaine patches by PAR

Has anyone used these? My provider wants to send me these instead of the brands I know to be good, such as Qualitest, Actavis, Endo & Watson. They sent Mylan once and these are useless because of the stiff backing. ## Yes, I have them they are worthless, I am reporting these patches to my insurance company, they are not a generic equivalent to the "Brand" patch, which has 700 mg of Lidocaine, Mylan has 140 mg. They fall off after an hour, they are very hard to open. My insurance company sent them years ago I sent them back. Actavis is a great generic and meets what I think are minimum requirements 700 mg of Lidocaine, easy to apply and they stick. ## Par is the generic for endo I am going to try. Actavis is junk too. Call the company and ask for a refund to be sent to your p...

Lidocaine pain patch and breathalyzer

Currently I use a lidocaine patch manufactured by Pfizer called Flector. On bad days I will wear 3 to 4 at a time. My doctor mentioned this could possibly be detected by a breathalyzer. Is this true? ## Hello Robbie, I have searched high and low and I cannot find anything at all that would suggest this. I really do hate to disagree with medical professionals as I am not one myself but I just can't seem to find any sources credible or not that claim lidocaine would cause you to fail a breathalyzer. Now I will admit that I have read some claims that if you are taking enough of the Lidocaine patches you could theoretically fail a drug analysis but there has been no credible source or case studies that support this. In the event that such a problem happened you would simply need to expl...

diclofenac 3% / gabapentin 6% / baclofen 2% / lidocaine 5% cream

This cream (diclofenac 3% / gabapentin 6% / baclofen 2% / lidocaine 5%) and doxepin hydrochloride 5% cream is supposed to be used for pain in my knee and back. I found the second cream but the first which contains four different items is hard to track down. The warnings and interactions is what I am concerned about. ## Generally, these creams can vary from doctor to doctor, and they need to be made by a compounding pharmacist. Thus, they aren't usually "in stock" anywhere, they are made specifically according to what your doctor has ordered. Do you have a compounding pharmacy in your area? The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including skin irritation, redness, flaking, and burning. ## The compounding pharmacy is about thirty miles away and they use UPS for del...

Can Lidocaine Test Positive For Cocaine In A Hair Test

I have a small delivery/transportation business in Ohio. My husband & I decided to grow our company by purchasing a vehicle that requires a CDL B. The guy we have driving that truck has his class A but if he quit or needed a day off we had no one to fill in so I took classes to get my CDL A's in March of 2014. After receiving my CDL’s [for experience & financial reasons] I made the decision to sign on & drive for a large trucking company in June of 2014. The company performed a hair drug test on me but apparently did not get they're results until after I started the orientation. During my orientation the MRO called & tells me that I tested positive for cocaine. I knew that there had been a mistake because I am not a drug user. He asked me had I been to the ...

GI Cocktail Cost

how much does this prescription cost? ## A GI Cocktail just refers to a mixture of products that is used to clean out the gastric system and intestinal tract, before certain medical tests and procedures. Therefore, it does not refer to any specific product or medication, so I am unable to quote you an estimated cost for it. Have you tried asking your doctor, or pharmacy? ## You have absolutely given the wrong information. A gastrointestinal cocktail, known as a GI cocktail, is a generic term for a mixture of liquid antacid, viscous lidocaine, and an anticholin ergic primarily used to treat dyspepsia.[1] The GI cocktail may also deceptively mask pain originating from the hearThere is a wide variety of GI cocktail recipes in use today. A very popular one is a mixture of Maalox, viscous li...

Lidocaine causing urinary difficulty

My doctor said I have to avoid all opioids and narcotics due to problems urinating. Recently I increased the amount of lidocaine cream that I use for pain control on my feet, and have had difficulty urinating. Can there be a cause and effect, or is it just coincidence? ## When used topically, according to FDA reports, you usually don't absorb enough for it to cause many internal side effects, usually they are just topical side effects that can include skin redness, irritation, and flaking. If you've been having problems urinating, it could just be another flare up of that, though it is hard to say, and only your care provider can give you a definitive answer. Are you male? If so, have you had a recent prostate check? Prostate enlargement is a frequent issue that causes urinary p...

Can Lidocaine Cause A Positive Drug Test

I went to court, and took a drug screen and I was tested positive for cocaine. The day before my doctor gave me a shot that had lidocaine in it. ## From what I could gather, Caine anesthetics seem to be notorious for causing false positives for cocaine. This includes Novocaine, Benzocaine, Lidocaine, etc. If you were to take any course of action, I would recommend insisting on additional testing & perhaps requesting a GC/MS test (Gas Chromatography / Mass Spectrometry), as it is considered to be the most definitive method for confirming the presence of a drug in the urine. I think it's down right unfair for companies to not use this type of testing right off the bat, since there are so many false-positives being reported on a daily basis. At this point in time though, the best a...

can lidocaine used for mouth ulcers cause a false positive for cocaine in a urine test

I tested positive for cocaine but use liquid lidocaine for mouth ulcers every 4-6 hours and have for months. ## I realize this question was posted a very long time ago but I wanted to let you know that viscous lidocaine, which is what you are referring to and I was recently prescribed, will not cause a positive result for cocaine. It does however sometimes cause a positive result for one of the amphetamine categories (I believe it was methamphetamines). According to poison control and to the lab that I spoke to the only thing that can cause a cocaine positive on a drug test is actually cocaine. Not lidocaine or novocaine or bupivacaine, etc. ## Wrong do more research. Lidocain does test false positive and the doctors know this but wont discuss it same as morphine they wont discuss it.

Lidocaine cocaine false positive

Can lidocaine used during surgery test positive for cocaine on a gas urine drug test? ## Can Aspercreme with 4% lidocaine in it cause you to fail a drug test for cocaine? Could a patch you can buy over the counter with Lidocaine in it cause you to fail for cocaine as well? ## I use lidocaine 5% occasionally and I have tested positive for morphine. Also hydrocodone 10s and cough syrup with hydrocodone in it for copd. Will the patches cause the morphine to show up as I dont use any drugs other than prescribed? ## My pain management doctor focused on the morphine that showed up on my test in december. I do not nor have I ever used morphine or cocaine, nor any other drugs only prescribed by doctors. I had hand surgery which they used morphine. What the hell is wrong with these doctors? He l...

Burning sensation in using lidocaine ointment

I had my colon removed, now I have this burning sensation after each bowel movement. After each movement I apply Lidocaine for relief but it burns worse and won't cease until I remove it. When I was using the lower % 2.5, that worked but had to use a lot for relief. I tried the 5% at the diva office and it worked fine but doesn't now. ...why? ## Do have any more details on it, such as the ingredients, or the manufacturer? That would give me the information needed to research this for you. It is possible that you are just sensitive to some ingredient in that dosage, the FDA does warn that skin burning, and irritation can be side effects, along with redness, and scaling skin. At the office they may have had one made by a different manufacture, your pharmacy might have provided you...

Can Lidocaine Show A False Positive For Alcohol In Urine Test

i need to know if lidocaine viscous can show up as alcohol in a urine test. ## can lidocaine show up as cocaine on i urine test i got a friend that failed a drug test for cocaine but he said he dont do that he said he used lidocaine for a toothache i need to know asap ## On the alcohol question, no it should not show up as that, however, if you have a prescription for it, you should inform them of this, when you go in for testing. Which leads to pnut's question and yes, it can cause a false positive for Cocaine on some tests. It is distantly related to it. Since this works as an anesthetic, there can be severe problems associated with using it improperly and overdosing, so it shouldn't be used with a doctor's instructions and supervision. Are there any other comments or ques...

what is the tribedoce dx injection used for

Besides the DX the box I have say “lidocaina” which I am assuming is Lidocaine, a pain relief drug. My wife wants to use this for hip pain from hip displacia but I just want to make sure that there will be no harmful side effect. Seeing that this also had a corticosteroid in it, Dexamethasone, I am inclined to NOT inject her with it because that is a class of drugs that can have serious side effects if used incorrectly or by the wrong person. ## All medications carry the risk of causing side effects, so yes, there may be dangers, and it should only be administered with a doctors approval. The FDA warns that it may cause administration site reactions, redness, pain, headache, nausea, weight changes, mood changes, and skin reactions. How is she doing? Did you try it? Is she on...

Help identifying a topical compound with the following abbreviations: LI 2.5%, PR 2.5%, CY 0.1%, GA 6%, AR

What is "LI 2.5%/PR 2.5%/CY 0.1%/GA 6%/AR"? I found it in my mother's medicine cabinet and she doesn't remember what it's for. ## These are specialized ointments ordered by a doctor and filled by a compounding pharmacy, but going by what I've learned, my best guess from what you've listed is that it contains Lidocaine (which is as topical anesthetic), Pregabalin (which is used to treat nerve pain), Cyclobenzaprine (which is a muscle relaxant), and Gabapentin (which is also used to treat nerve pain.) However, you can always contact the pharmacy to be sure. They should be able to tell you the precise ingredients, in case I'm wrong, as well as why it was prescribed. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including skin redness, irritation, drynes...

can lidocaine cause a false positive on a urine test

I tested positive for cocaine but never did it. But I had a bone marrow done and had lidocaine. Will this give me a false positive on my urine drug test? ## I've had two steroid epidurals with lidocaine injections in my back and failed a urine test for cocaine and opiates. I also take pain meds and lidocaine creams on my back. I do not use cocaine and opiates. Is this what could cause a positive drug screen?

Lidocaine patches

I have very severe and advance DDD and have been taking MS-Contin which has been helpful. However I always have severe pain every time I walk around 15 steps or so due to severe muscle spasms. For 12 years the only relief I would get would be to stop walking and try to stretch the muscle in my back and the spasms. After a few more yards I would have to stop walking again. I have been on every muscle relaxant that has ever been made with no help. I am at a point that I will soon need a wheelchair when I leave my home. This past weekend I had a chance to try Lidocaine patches and I could not believe when I started to walk my pain was gone. While my doctor has no problem writing a prescription for them my Medicare part D provider (Cigna) will not pay for them because the FDA has only appro...
