Buy Lidoderm brand or generic Lidocaine prescription drug from Canada
Why is Lidoderm prescribed?
Lidocaine (Lidoderm) patch is prescribed to alleviate the pain of post-herpetic neuralgia (a complication of shingles affecting the nerves and skin). It should only be applied to intact and undamaged skin.
What does it do?
Post-herpetic neuralgia causes burning and sharp pains for months or years, sensitivity to touch, itching, and numbness on the affected area. Lidoderm belongs to a drug class called local anesthetics and it works by inhibiting nerve signals and causing temporary numbness in the area being treated.
How should I apply it?
Lidoderm and its generic equivalents are currently available in 5% patches. It should only be applied to the skin.
Apply and press the patch firmly to ensure it stays on your skin. Do not apply Lidoderm onto cuts or irritated skin. Wash your hands thoroughly after handling the medication. Throw away used Lidoderm patches and do not reuse them. Always follow your doctor’s instructions when using Lidoderm.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only use this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if used properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. If you miss a dose, apply it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never apply two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before using Lidoderm?
Inform your doctor about all the medications you are taking, your current and previous medical history, and any allergic reactions to Lidoderm or any other ingredients included in the manufacture of this medication.
