Lidoderm works well for extreme arthriis pain but looking for other alternatives due to the cost?
Both of these medications contain 5% lidocaine which is the numbing agent. The lidoderm is just a different delivery system then the lidocream. The delivery system of the lidoderm patch releases the medication over a longer period of time without having to reapply which is more convenient and may well work better although more expensive. Otherwise, they are the same. As far as safety, the lidocream is just as safe as the lidoderm as long as applied correctly.
