How should I use Lidoderm?

Only use Lidoderm as instructed by your doctor. Lidoderm is a topical medication that is usually applied in the form of a patch. Never apply more than three patches at one time, and never wear patches for more than 12 hours per day. Using too many patches or leaving patches on for too long may cause serious side effects. Wash your hands carefully before and after applying Lidoderm, so you do not accidentally transfer the medication to your eyes or mouth. Do not apply it to cuts or broken skin unless instructed by your doctor, and do not put bandages or plastic wrap over the medication on your skin.
