Generic name: MENTHOL 5g, LIDOCAINE 4.5g
Dosage form: patch

Apply Lidothol to intact skin to cover the most painful area. Apply no more than four patches per day. Each patch should not be applied for more than 12 hours in a given 24-­‐ hour period. Patches may be cut into smaller sizes with scissors prior to removal of the protective film. Clothing may be worn over the area of application. Smaller areas of treatment are recommended in a debilitated patient, or a patient with impaired elimination.

If irritation or a burning sensation occurs during application, remove the patch and do not reapply until the irritation subsides.

When Lidothol is used concurrently with other products containing local anesthetic agents, the amount absorbed from all formulations must be considered.

Lidothol may not stick if it gets wet. Avoid contact with water, such as bathing, swimming or showering.
