LIDODERM: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Postherpetic Neuralgia “I have used the brand name Lidoderm, by Endo patches for years for my back and even my neuralgia from the shingles. They are flexible and stick comfortably to the skin. They are thick and “cool” feeling in addition which I love. My newest prescription was for the Mylan brand. They don’t stick, aren’t flexible and feel like plastic. Press and hold after application and even tape doesn’t really help. They say they deliver the same amount of Lidocaine to the patient, per gram of adhesive as the brand name patches. I have to say, it feels like there isn’t any adhesive on these in comparison. Hopefully, they will realize that they (Mylan) never gets refills and make a change. CVS QUIT SELLING THIS BRAND OF GENERIC!”

For Postherpetic Neuralgia “I am a veteran and the VA recently contracted with Mylan for patches. THEY ARE HORRIBLE! I have to tape them on. They will not stay on without tape. What a way to scam our VETS. VA pharmacy told me that everyone at the hospital hates them. If you have to buy your own, DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!”

For Postherpetic Neuralgia “What an absolute waste of money. They are made of cheap plastic. Uncomfortable. Do not adhere. Mylan should be ashamed of themselves. I’ve used name brand which were white cloth patch and effective. These are a joke! No relief. I don’t believe they have any medication on them. Shame on the company!”

For Postherpetic Neuralgia “Your patches will not stay on long enough to supply pain relief. When I apply one to my lower back it folds onto itself within 3 hours no matter what I do. They need to be like the Qualitest patches that I have used for years”

For Postherpetic Neuralgia “Watson are the worst although I have not tried Mylan and since I no longer have insurance and not working I won’t be getting them again at 350.00 a box.”
