Pain Center dr wants me to try lidocaine infusions

I’ve been on gabapentin 600 mg 3x’s a day. I’m still having bad flares. Dr wants me to try lyrica. I’m afraid - not heard good things. Also, wants me to get lidocaine infusions (every week for 4 weeks then monthly). Has anyone tried lidocaine infusions?

Hi @Debstinydogs! I did a quick search on lidocaine here, and I found these results

Hopefully there is some information here that you can use. I searched using the magnifying glass on the top right of the page.


Thank you for your help. The vast majority of the information posted was about lidocaine patches vs lidocaine infusions. I thank you for your effort.

As Sharon said, clicking on the magnifying glass on the top right of this page, just to the left of your avatar, takes you to the site search engine, which works very well.
image Using it for the terms “lidocaine infusion” gets you this.
Hope this helps

Speaking of “Patches”, keep a look out for this week’s SPOT newsletter!

Thank you, I will!! :heart::heart::heart::heart:

It’s about “Patches”, which you aren’t really interested in, but I found it very interesting.

BTW, I did some reading on the lidocaine infusions here and other sources, and was impressed with what I read. Good luck with this, and be sure to keep us in the loop on how things are going for you.
