When I say "sore", I mean to say painful muscles.
Can I use my Lidoderm 5% Patch on sore muscles in/on my arms, neck, shoulders?

When my doctor prescribed Lidoderm patches for my chronic pain, he said I could put the patches anywhere as long as there was not an open wound near by. I was also told NOT to apply more than 3 patches on my body at one time. I've used the patches on my neck, back, knees, arms, and feet. So, as long as you use 3 or less at one time, and don't keep them on longer than 8 hours you should be okay.
I was told pretty much the same thing except my doctor said I can leave them on for 12 hours and then keep them off for 12 hours and then repeat the process. I was also told that you can cut them to fit but not to put more than a total of 3 whole patches on at once.
yes, my husband puts them on his arms ,hands, feet, back, legs, and even his knees they seem to help him.He has chronic pain from a back surgery he had 4 years ago. hope this answer helps you. god bless
