Lidocaine Overview

Lidocaine, also known as lignocaine, is a medication used to numb tissue in a specific area (local anesthetic).[4] It is also used to treat ventricular tachycardia and to perform nerve blocks.[3][4] Lidocaine mixed with a small amount of adrenaline (epinephrine) is available to allow larger doses for numbing, to decrease bleeding, and to make the numbing effect last longer.[4] When used as an injectable, lidocaine typically begin...

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...

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...

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...
