I'm a pharmacist and in my country we dan't have emla cream and we need it for local anesthetic in surgeries.is it possible that I can make it?
You left out information that is probably why you have not received an answer. Are you trying to make the cream from the lidocaine patches? Have you tried the Lidocaine patches before and what was your success rate? I have had Lidocaine patches prescribed numerous times and they have never worked. So much so that I wouldn't even bother trying to turn them into a cream. My boyfriend was prescribed a cream called Volterin and it does seem to work for him. My pain is deeper so I have not tried it. I hope you get the answer you are looking for soon.
