Is there a plan to release a transdermal patch lidocaine and gabapentin for chronic pain?
8 Feb 2014
I've never heard of a patch with that combo of meds. Or any plans to make one. Why don't you just use a Lidocane patch and take Gabapentin? I've done that within the last 30 years of my Chronic pain. I never had any relief from the Lidocaine, but the Gabapentin works great if your pain is nerve related.

I take 600mg of gabapentin, three times a day. I also use Lidocaine patches on my lower back and left thigh because of nerve pain and fibromyalgia. Works wonders, and has allowed me to get off of Norco 10/325, and use Tramadol only when needed. I had very little withdrawal systems after 8 years on Norco 10/325, and I was taking eight Norcos per day. I attribute that to the gabapentin, Motrin or Aleve, vitamin supplements and rest. Stick with the Lidocaine patches and Gabapentin... together, they really work well.
