    Wonderful and it works but deoending on your Medicare Part D Plan the cost can be HORRENDOUS! And the generics are less effective, thinner and messier. I have stopped using because my cost is close to $500 for 30.

    Have had 5 back surgeries since mid-1970s. Last one left with nerve damage to right leg & foot. No feeling in leg but horrible nerve pain. Been on the Lidoderm patch for several years & love it. Recently insurance stopped coverage except for generic, Lidocaine. Hate Lidocaine. It's sticky due to being too thin which causes getting the plastic off the product very hard.

    The lidocaine patches have woked so well for me. I have Costochondritis, arthritis in my lower back, hands and wrists, as well as tendonitis. For years doctors kept giving me pain killers and muscle relaxers, which help, but nothing like the patches do. I like just putting on one patch instead of taking pills every 4 to 6 hours.

    YOU MUST READ FIRST After being in a very serous accident, where I broke my left leg, ankle and foot, 47 bone fragments, they could not even do surgery right away. My Pain Management Doctor gave me the patch because all my nerves were damaged and I have NO feeling in my leg or foot. You know what we go though every day, where we have no idea as to where our next step is going to be. ... Show Full Comment
