Who should not use Lidoderm?

Anyone allergic to any of its ingredients, and anyone whose associated symptoms have disappeared, should not use Lidoderm. The patch form has not been studied in nursing women, so it should be used with caution if needed. You should not use any more than the recommended dose, and avoid using Lidoderm in ways other than as directed by your doctor. You should consult with your doctor if you do not see an improvement in symptoms or if you experience serious side effects at any point while using this medication.
