User Comments about Lidocaine
23 Sep 2010 Good for numbing, but only if you take large doses. If not, you still have sensations during a procedure.

18 May 2010 I had a surgery for a hammertoe correction and they gave me a lidocaine shot before starting to numb me and it did nothing to numb the pain. They increased the dose and it still didnt work. I have also used lidocaine patches in the past for my back and have not felt any relief from them.
