A Lidoderm patch was applied to the knee of a 95-year-old woman with reddened skin from surgical repair of a broken knee cap. She was also taking Atenolol, a beta blocker. Could this combination have contributed to euphoria, agitation, confusion, and delirium? If so, how would that have worked?
Systemic side-effects following appropriate use of Lidoderm are unlikely, due to the small dose absorbed.
Reported systemic side effects include light headedness, nervousness, apprehension, euphoria, confusion, dizziness, drowsiness, tinnitus, blurred or double vision, vomiting, sensations of heat, cold or numbness, twitching, tremors, convulsions, unconsciousness, respiratory depression and arrest.
