Lidoderm is a local anesthetic (numbing) medication. It works by blocking nerve signals in your body. It is not a narcotic.

However, please double check it with a pharmacist, take care.

Nope, Lidoderm isn't a narcotic. Think of it as Lidocaine... Sounds like Novacaine (the stuff they numb you up at the dentist). I use them every single day and love em! Hope this helps :)
