What is lidocaine?

Lidoderm 5 % (700 mg/patch) Adhesive Patch
Drug Name: LIDOCAINE PATCH
Other Brand Names: Lidoderm
Uses: This medication is used to relieve nerve pain after shingles (infection with the herpes zoster virus). This type of pain is called post-herpetic neuralgia. Lidocaine helps to reduce sharp/burning/aching pain as well as discomfort caused by skin areas that are overly sensitive to touch. Lidocaine belongs to a class of drugs known as local anesthetics. It works by causing a temporary loss of feeling in the area where you apply the patch.
