LIDOPATCH INFO 2018-04-13T19:15:16+00:00


Lidocaine has been helping people suffering in pain for over 75 years, menthol is organic and was first used for pain relief over 300 years ago.

What lidocaine and menthol are NOT:

Neither are opioids or narcotics and are not addictive

Neither are NSAID’s (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory) like ibuprofen (Motrin and Advil) and naproxen(Aleve). Manufacturers of NSAID’s are required by the FDA to warn patients about increased risk of cardiac events including heart attacks and stoke, especially for those already at high risk of a cardiac event (high blood pressure, high cholesterol).2

Neither are acetaminophen (Tylenol). When taken more than directed acetaminophen is responsible for over 56,000 emergency rooms visits, 2,600 hospitalizations and an estimated 458 deaths due to liver failure every year.3

Why Use LidoPatch®?

LidoPatch® is the ONLY Over the Counter patch that proven to work as well as the prescription 5% lidocaine patches¹.

LidoPatch® has created a unique combination of lidocaine and menthol. Not only does menthol provide soothing pain relief, it’s also theorized to increase skin permeability making skin more porous allowing for more efficient delivery of lidocaine

Frustrated that even minor pain keeps you from doing activities you used to love to do?

LidoPatch® is the ONLY patch proven to allow users to return to normal work faster and increase activity levels.1 Not even the prescription lidocaine patch can make that claim.

No Prescription needed

Tired of other patches not staying in place?

Given different skin types and activity levels any patch can be difficult to hold in place all day. LidoPatch® is the ONLY patch that comes with patent pending “Patch Covers”. Similar to an adhesive bandage that is about an inch wider and longer than the patch itself. If you choose to apply the “Patch Cover”, it is placed over the patch after the patch is on your body and it virtually ensures all day adhesion.

LidoPatch® is cost effective.

Is your insurance company or government payer refusing to pay for prescription lidocaine patches anymore? LidoPatch® is less than half expensive as prescription patches. And with recommended dosing of just one patch per day, LidoPatch® has a low total cost per day of therapy compared to other lidocaine OTC patches.
