    Cool Lidocaine patches & RSD


    Is Lidoderm (lidocaine 5% patches) effective at controlling RSD pain? From Monday to Friday when I am most active, I apply small pieces of lidocaine patches on my left knee, where my RSD pain is worst.

    Hi babydoll, I use the patches at night when I (try to) sleep. They help a little sometimes. They seem to take the edge off slightly.

    Zim, I wish they had worked for you. Every little bit counts.

    Hope ya'lls weekend's a pain free one,
