I read the directions carefully.The patch was much thinner than the patch I was used to using. I used pressure on the patch, as was recommended in the directions. As soon as I released the pressure, the patch "jumped" off. The patch would not stay on, even when I used liquid bandage around the edges. So, I laid it on my knee and pulled my compression stocking over the top of it, so it would stay on my skin. After a bit, my leg started to hurt...

  • Quality of lidocaine patch

1-The plastic film is hard to pull off, especially when one has arthritic fingers. 2-The "sticky" side is not sticky at all and the backing is not pliable, it is a plastic type of material. 3-I have to use tape to hold in place, which is difficult when one is alone. 4-Lidoderm is much superior. I can't come up with 100 words. Crazy that they require that when 40 some odd words is enough. I can't come up with 100 words. Crazy that they require...

I agree with the first reviewer completely.I have been trying to use them for the better part of 2 weeks, and besides being nearly impossible to separate the plastic film from the patch, they don't stay on (the very slightest amount of sweat will make them peel off), but they do grab at each tiny hair on my lower back when I move (and it leaves some of the gooey film each time I remove one). Whatever their standards are to develop their product,...

Mylan Lidocaine Transdermal Patch Review

#824163
Awful replacement for Watson. Mylan does not stick. Bought mine at cvs and there are aware of faulty product.

For 2 years my wife has been using lidocaine patches and they stayed on for the full 12 hours. Her last prescription was filled with a Mylan lidocaine patch and it doesn't adhere properly. Accordingly, I contacted Mylan thru their website and filed a quality control complaint and provided lot number on the product. Also talked to our pharmacist and said he has received complaints about the Mylan patch. My contact with Mylan was a week before...

Similar complaints to all of these posts. Have been using Lidocane patches for some time with great success. My mail order pharmacy sent the ones made by Mylan. I used one and called to express my dissatisfaction. The pharmacy said they receive many similar complaints and will request those made by Watson. Much more comfortable. Made with cloth not plastic and I've never had one peel off. They are repalcing my order with the Watson made...

I am completely frustrated with these cheap, junky patches!I have to clean my skin with rubbing alcohol to get them to (barely) stick. As soon as I move, they crinkle up and fall off. What an incredibly *** design! Were these patches even tested before they were put on the market? They are completely useless, as I need to wear them at night so I can reduce my pain enough to sleep, and since they don't stay on, they don't work. Also, I have pets,...

They crinkle, won't stick, pull hair and are way too expensive for what you get.I will tell all family and friends to avoid this product.

A agree the mylan product is inferior to the qualitest products..mylan curls,doesn't, stay on the skin. I talked to mylan staff who said to make sure the area was clean and to use tape to keep product on skin..not a good reality,people sweat at night and tape is painful to remove and adds to the expense,,,my pharmacists now carries both qualitest and mylan but the buyer has to request the product desired.

The Mylan Lidocaine 5% patch is horrible--it does not adhere to the skin. I had my pharmacist evaluate it, and he said it was "defective" or, of very poor quality. I brought two different brands for him to evaluate...the Mylan and the path made by Watson. After carefully evaluating both patches, he was in absolute shock at how poor the Mylan patch was in terms of quality (ability to firmly adhere to the skin) I reported Mylan to the FDA at...
