    Has anybody used the Lidoderm patches. How effective was it for you? My doctor wants me to try these. Thanks.

    I don't know if it is the same but I have used the thermal wraps and they do help. I buy them at wal-mart they are expensive but when you are hurting real bad they do help which makes it worth it to me. I hope this helps, it sure wouldn't hurt to give it a try.

    Good Luck

    Hello. Yes, the Lidoderm patches are excellent!
    Several of us have written about these before. Just do a
    search on lidoderm & you'll see what we've said before.

    Barb, these were a Rx from my pain management doctor. If I did not have an insurance co-pay I could never afford these.

    Betsy, yes the doctor told me that these patches should help with fibro pain. He asked me to put them on where I hurt the most. The first day I used them my hip was in unbearable pain and these patches worked great.

    ephemera, yes I will do a search. Maybe I can find out how many of us had good results with these patches.

    Thanks to all.
