Lidoderm (lidocaine) for Postherpetic Neuralgia: "Ridiculous. ...Mylan should be embarrassed to say the least. You might as well be putting scotch tape on your body instead. That's how useless and uncomfortable the product is!!! Change your product MYLAN. Maybe Endo Pharmaceutical could give you some pointers!"

For Neuropathic Pain: "Re: LIDOCAINE 5% PATCH By MYLAN is the worst I have ever seen. I was using a brand by ACTAVIS that was great. These by Mylan do not stick at all, it’s like there isn’t even any medication in them either, HORRIBLE. I WOULD GIVE IT A NEGATIVE rating but I couldn’t. I got these by prescription at CVS. Tomorrow I will take one of each brand and show the pharmacist how horrible and waste of money they are."

LMX 5 (lidocaine) for Hemorrhoids: "This cream is the best for hemmies, as we call them in the doctor’s office I work in. I’ve used it off and on for 20 years when I have a flare, when constipation and pushing leaves painful hemmies. Nothing is worse. A 30 gram tube will run $60, give or take. But it lasts quite awhile. It has been the same price for the 20 years. I’ve tried other brands and they work. But something in this brand makes it last longer. This usually works for me: Clean the area gently with Toilet Paper (TP) and witch hazel. Pat dry. Then apply a peanut size amount using TP. Repeat in 2-4 hours. Take Metamucil or stool softener daily and BM’s will be consistent and not hard. Avoid pushing hard with bowel motions. Use hot sitz baths as much as you can. Take a OTC pain reliever and you’re good to go. Well, for the most part. I had surgery 20+ years ago and it lasted maybe 4 years?"

For Neuropathic Pain: "My roommate & I both have used the Qualitest lidocaine patches for several years. We were happy with the results & had no side effects. Recently we both have experienced blistering skin reactions at the site of usage. The lot number is 57298 with a 4/2020 expiration date. So right now I am unable to use the patches until my skin heals. Has anyone else had this happen?"

For Neuropathic Pain: "Mylan lidocaine patches are useless. They do not stick at all. When you try to put them on they wrinkle up. They fall off within 1 hour."

Lidoderm (lidocaine) for Postherpetic Neuralgia: "If I could give a lower rating than 1, I would. I have used Lidoderm by 2 other manufacturers in the past so can say with authority that the Mylan patch is horrible. What good is it if it doesn't stay on? Having to tape it is unacceptable (and doesn't work), especially considering the cost. I cannot believe the Mylan version was given FDA approval. As a registered nurse, I am appalled that this company would make such an inferior product for people who must live with pain. I recommend Lidoderm widely, but now I am telling everyone I know to avoid it if they have no choice but the ineffective Mylan formulation of it."

For Pain: "At first didn't notice if was working. After about an hour I stopped thinking about it and went on about my day. Later I realized that it was working because my focus was no longer on the pain."

Lidoderm (lidocaine) for : "The worst. They don't stick. They are NOTHING like the flexible, cushiony generics I used to get. I told CVS they were no good and I was told this was the only kind they were going to carry. I then said I was going to change pharmacies and I was told "OK, No problem". These patches are a HUGE problem. Worthless."

For Anesthesia: "This is a great item for Elders who skin can not handle the super sticky glue types. Hear do not stick as well and this is a good thing. Thin skin tears and burns easy."

Lidoderm (lidocaine) for Postherpetic Neuralgia: "My first question is why did Mylan discontinue making the cotton patches that actually stuck to your skin and start producing a less quality patch that would not stick to a dry surface of any kind? Secondly, who test these products and provides the thumbs up for quality control? And third, why do the consumers have to settle with less quality medicines as the prices inflate to purchase and the stocks just continue to rise."

For Local Anesthesia: "My experience with this medication was traumatizing. This was used as a local anesthia for a procedure I was awake. I had to receive multiple injections. After the first injection I knew something was wrong. My vision went blurry, my eyes felt like they were rapidly moving uncontrollably, my feet started twitching uncontrollably, and the heart rate machine was beeping as if my heart was going so fast, then it would suddenly drop and give the flat line noise, when that happened my chest felt "hollow" and I felt as if I was taking my last breathe. I kept telling the nurse to talk to me, I felt like I would loss consciousness at any moment, I literally felt like I was dying on the table. It was the scariest thing I have EVER experienced. They told me I had a rare reaction to the medication but that I was okay. And they let me leave. The whole ordeal lasted maybe 10 minutes max, but no-one will ever come near me with lidocaine ever again."

Aspercreme Maximum Strength Lidocaine Patch (lidocaine) for Pain: "Can't tell if this works or not, won't stay on long enough to get an idea. Every time I move it balls up. Only put it on 40 mins ago and I'm sitting here literally holding it in place (gave up on taping it, that didn't help either). Total waste of money."

For Neuropathic Pain: "I used the original Lidoderm patches, they worked very well, they stuck and had a cloth like backing. Then they began to make generic. I tried the Actavis and was shocked by the thin crinkly texture. If it doesn't stick it doesn't matter how inexpensive which it is expensive. I have been told the Watson aren't good either This week I received a Qualitest and it looks just like the original Lidoderm patch. For $270 in my area I thought that was ridiculous. So found a place where it was less expensive and used a coupon. I saved $170 ."

For Neuropathic Pain: "These are the worst patches. They don’t stick at all!!!!! They roll right off, and I can’t even stick the sides together like the package says to do in order to not poison anyone with lidocaine. Absolutely worthless garbage. I’ve wasted three now. And this is on my back so it’s a flat surface."

Lidoderm (lidocaine) for Postherpetic Neuralgia: "I have used the brand name Lidoderm, by Endo patches for years for my back and even my neuralgia from the shingles. They are flexible and stick comfortably to the skin. They are thick and "cool" feeling in addition which I love. My newest prescription was for the Mylan brand. They don't stick, aren't flexible and feel like plastic. Press and hold after application and even tape doesn't really help. They say they deliver the same amount of Lidocaine to the patient, per gram of adhesive as the brand name patches. I have to say, it feels like there isn't any adhesive on these in comparison. Hopefully, they will realize that they (Mylan) never gets refills and make a change. CVS QUIT SELLING THIS BRAND OF GENERIC!"

For Pain: "I've began using Lidocaine 5% patches made by Qualitest for neck, back spinal pain. The patches stuck like glue and were very effective. Eventually insurance no longer covered them! I was able to get more ...some were Qualitest, but then they switched to the Mylan patch... what a horrible product!! They are extremely hard to apply, then crinkle and fall off within hours...giving little to no relief from the spinal pain. I'm sure they are expensive... and I end up using many more of these cheapo Mylan patches than the "good" patches. PLEASE get rid of them, they are worthless... Stick to a reliable product that is worth the money paid for them!!! Make the "good" ones affordable!!!"

Aspercreme Maximum Strength Lidocaine Patch (lidocaine) for Pain: "I purchased this because I found the cream to be very messy. The patch does work for my post shingles pain. The problem is that it keeps falling off. Definitely needs improvement in the adhesive."

For Neuropathic Pain: "I tried the MYLAN 5% patches that the VA prescribes... and like other Vets, I can accurately report they are GARBAGE and don't stick to the skin. I tried the topical cream... which was ok if in a pinch... but it's STICKY! I have to cover both arms and both legs repeatedly so this wasn't necessarily a good fit for me. FINALLY I was prescribed the QUALITEST brand of the 5% lidocaine patch through the VA and am VERY happy with the product. The patches actually stick to my skin and stay put! Of course, don't get them wet or do activities where you will sweat quite a bit or they will start peeling at the edges. I'm just thankful they actually stay on. I use them mostly at night when I'm falling asleep. It helps SO SO SO much!!!"
