You should speak with your doctor before using Lidoderm if you have allergies to any medications, broken or swollen skin anywhere near the site of application, liver disease, heart block or shock. If you overdose on Lidoderm, which can happen if you absorb too much lidocaine into your blood through open cuts, or if you use too much, it can affect your heartbeat, breathing and cause seizures. If you experience any of these, contact your doctor immediately. You should not take Lidoderm while you are breastfeeding, and you should avoid mixing it with any cosmetic products once it is applied.
