For Pain "Just diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma (cancer) of my lower lip. Waiting to undergo beam radiation therapy. Covers almost half my lip. Using Lidocaine Viscous prescribed by my Dr. to numb the intense pain he warned me I would have. He was So right. Allows me to sleep."
For Pain "Was prescribed this for a severe sore throat. I was really nervous to take this because it’s more like a gel. I measured out 10 ml and swished it around and then swallowed. The medicine tastes like lube. That’s the only thing I can compare it to. And my mouth is numb but it didn’t really do anything to my sore throat."
For Pain "Was prescribed to me for a tooth abscess in my lower left molar, severe swelling (left side of mouth, cheek, jaw and my throat) and for pain in my left tonsil...which hurt so much that I couldn't eat, barely drink, actually I just couldn't swallow anything PERIOD! By getting this solution...I am now able to swallow a little better and although my molar is still in ALOT of pain...it is now actually stand-able to some degree; which I know it wouldn't be if I didn't have this to take. Negatives: 1) Tastes really gross but worth it for the relief. 2) Hard to keep it in your mouth, w/o it oozing out (large dose/small mouth, I guess) 3) VERY thick! I use a dosing syringe to get all of the med especially to a specific place in my mouth."
For Pain "I have chronic bursitis and these patches are the only thing that helps. They help numb the pain so I can walk. Thank you!! But now my insurance won't pay for it. What can I do?? It cost hundreds of dollars a box. Please help !!!!"
For Pain "I was prescribed lidoderm but the pharmacist switched the prescription to lidocaine 5% patch. This was TERRIBLE !!! The patch dried off and fell off in about 2 hours. The adhesive was pathetically weak and didn't hold the patch in place not even long enough to do any good. I know as a former drug salesman for Upjohn this kind of shoddy imitation would never have been tolerated. Why don't you try quality and I would assume they are made in some third world country. Terrible is the only term I can use to describe this copy cat medication."
For Pain "I was prescribed this for reflux pain. I had such bad pain tonight. I almost couldn’t mix it. I tried to mix it with liquid antacid and could barely do it. After taking it the pain was gone in just a couple minutes. My mouth was numb but it was worth it to have the pain gone."
For Pain "This only works for your tooth pain for an hour, before that , the sharp pain feeling starts subtly creeping back. Not only that, it's so thick that even if you spit out as much as possible, you could be at risk for choking. I wish providers would prescribe actual pain relievers for tooth pain, instead of this sham."
For Anesthesia "The normal usage of this is for oral sores from cancer or dental problems, But I was given this to apply to external cancer lesions, malignant wounds. It did absolutely nothing whatsoever to ease pain. Better to use Solarcaine which has more lidocaine in it than this stuff does, even though Solarcaine only lasted about 15 minutes to slightly numb the area."
For Pain "Was prescribed for abscessed tooth. All it did was intensify the pain. No relief what so ever!"
