    anyone have a prescription for this stuff? I might be able to look it up on the medical database when I get to school but I wasnt sure if anyone here has used it before.

    Yes, I've used lidoderm patches for relief of nerve pain coming off the spine. -On for 12 hrs, then OFF for 12 hrs. Provides good pain relief for properly indicated situations. edit: They're affordable, easy to apply, and non-narcotic, but important to take off for the 12 hrs, as it can produce unwanted side effects if worn continuously

    I carry a few patches in my gym bag because my shoulder acts funny at times. They work very well... sometimes too well as I may forget that I have it on. icon_smile.gif
