using for low back pain. has helped, especially if applied when painis just beginning. Had a scary side effect though. After using 3 patches several days 8? in a row, I woke up felt dizzy and nearly fell into the bath tub. Took 24 hr.s to clear.

After using Lidoderm patches (in the evening) for my lower back pain I experienced a building anxiety that contributed to problems sleeping, irritability and occasional dizziness and balance problems during the day.

I used lidocaine for a skin irritation. It came in a tube so was easy to apply. Did not experience side effects.

I am using this for back pain and it seems to relax my back, however, I've also had strange dreams.
