I use lidoderm patches for pain that is close to the skin, like my hands. My doc will only let me use one at a time. I also take liquid lidocaine for gastritis if it is really, really bad, which isn't that often. I would have to do a lot of research before I did the infusions cause you can OD on lidocaine that is why my doc will only let me use one patch at a time with the other meds I'm on.
luv and hugs
