Reviews for Lidocaine/prilocaine

For Anesthesia: "I got a small tube to try and help with Premature Ejaculation. I applied a very small amount over my penis head and left it for about 10-15 mins. The end of my penis was completely numb and it's an odd sensation I can tell you. It's a little alarming actually but the feeling starts to return after about 20 mins. Only use a small amount and do a "test run" on your own so you can be prepared for the numbing sensation. Does exactly what it's supposed to."

For Anesthesia: "Applied to right lower leg for a lump and pain from the ankle to the knee. Very painful to touch or press on. Within one week the lump disappeared and all pain left the affected area. This condition was over one year with no treatment correcting the problem. I am pleased with the results."

For Anesthesia: "I use 2.5/2.5% EMLA cream for electrolysis of my facial hair. It does not work as well for me as others. It reaches maximum effectiveness 8-15 minutes after application, and the numbing effect begins to wear off after about 30 minutes, so it works quickly for me, but not very long. When I applied it 1-2 hours before procedure, as recommended, it had completely worn off by then. Although it does help, there are areas of my face (around the mouth) where the pain is still quite intense, even with the EMLA cream, and I often have to quit the procedure early due to the pain. I wish it worked better for me--good luck to others."

For Anesthesia: "My Reumatologist recommended this medication for nerve pain that shoots from my neck to my hands due to nerve damage in my neck following cervical spine surgery. I was skeptical about using it at first, however during an intense flare I could feel the tenderness along my arms to my hands and fingers and tried the gel. It definitely dulled the pain and helped to relieve the tenderness and tingling shooting to my fingers. Just one tool in my arsenal and a great help."

Emla (lidocaine / prilocaine) for Anesthesia: "I have a phobia of needles, and this is the way to get through blood tests. I had to keep getting blood tests, due to having low levels of iron in my blood, and if this numbing cream wasn't available, I don't know how I'd have coped. Come to think of it, using anything sharp on Me, is a nightmare. I didn't trust this cream to work more, at first, because quite a few medications haven't worked for me, but this was a godsend."

Emla (lidocaine / prilocaine) for Anesthesia: "Emla will do the job..for only half hour! It takes like 2 hours when you apply and you can't count on it more than 30-40 mins. If you wanna use Emla for a tattoo, anything bigger than the palm of your hand won't do the job! A little cute butterfly? Buy this product, you'll love it! A big rib piece? You better hold the pain and cry and faint than counting on this cream! And I do NOT know if you can re-apply some during the tattoo session. Just be aware that if the pain comes back and your tattoo is not over-your brain will freak out at least 6-7 times more and so as the pain! This product can be a b*tch if you want to use it on a $200 tattoo."

Emla (lidocaine / prilocaine) for Anesthesia: "I use Emla with a dermaroller. I apply a thin layer and put cling film over it for 60 minutes before starting treatment. It completely numbs the area and I can't feel the 1.5mm needles at all. I can now get thru a session in 5 minutes instead of 30 where I had to keep stopping cause of pain. I bought this for just over $20 for a 5mg tube at Chemist Warehouse. It's expensive but I only need one every 6 weeks and 5g covers my whole buttock and thigh area. I love this stuff!"

For Anesthesia: "As a nurse with over 20 yrs experience, my knees and back have took their toll of injury and pain. Lidocaine patches are a God send, I am free of pain and able to continue doing what I love most in life, taking care of others. Not having to depend on others to take care of me and prolonging my career. Thank God for Lidoderm!"

Oraqix (lidocaine / prilocaine) for Anesthesia: "I'm no stranger to the dental chair. I have over $30,000 invested in my teeth. After Peridontal surgery I began every 4 month deep cleanings. Due to root surfaces I had full mouth Novacaine every cleaning. I tried Oraqix, with great trepidation, 6 months ago. I just had my second cleaning with Oraqix. It is a MIRACLE. No pain whatsoever and no numbness to wear off. I would NOT have believed this possible without trying it. "
