EMLA: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

For Anesthesia “I have a phobia of needles, and this is the way to get through blood tests. I had to keep getting blood tests, due to having low levels of iron in my blood, and if this numbing cream wasn’t available, I don’t know how I’d have coped. Come to think of it, using anything sharp on Me, is a nightmare. I didn’t trust this cream to work more, at first, because quite a few medications haven’t worked for me, but this was a godsend.”

For Anesthesia “I only use Emla to have sex. I use it one hour before I have sex with my wife and I enjoy longer intensive sex. I am german and I bought it in germany for %u20AC 27.90 euro in a 25mg tube, much much cheaper then here.”

For Anesthesia “Emla will do the job..for only half hour! It takes like 2 hours when you apply and you can’t count on it more than 30-40 mins. If you wanna use Emla for a tattoo, anything bigger than the palm of your hand won’t do the job! A little cute butterfly? Buy this product, you’ll love it! A big rib piece? You better hold the pain and cry and faint than counting on this cream! And I do NOT know if you can re-apply some during the tattoo session. Just be aware that if the pain comes back and your tattoo is not over-your brain will freak out at least 6-7 times more and so as the pain! This product can be a b*tch if you want to use it on a $200 tattoo.”

For Anesthesia “I use Emla with a dermaroller. I apply a thin layer and put cling film over it for 60 minutes before starting treatment. It completely numbs the area and I can’t feel the 1.5mm needles at all. I can now get thru a session in 5 minutes instead of 30 where I had to keep stopping cause of pain. I bought this for just over $20 for a 5mg tube at Chemist Warehouse. It’s expensive but I only need one every 6 weeks and 5g covers my whole buttock and thigh area. I love this stuff!”

For Anesthesia “Without Emla cream I don’t know how I would have made it through my cancer treatments…Thank you so much. I am now finding it impossible to find Emla. My pharmacy have told me it has stopped being manufactured…is this true…Please say NO.”
