No, lidoderm is a aesthestic, in other words a local drug used to numb a specfic area for a usually short acting term. Although they have come out with a patch that lasts up to six hours for very specfic pain.

Think of it like this... Lidoderm is Lidocaine... they numb your mouth before dental procedures with Novacaine. When people ask what it is, I'm proud to say it is non-narcotic. A non-narcotic that works for pain doesn't come along all that often so I love it :)
