I have been using lidocaine patches for sometime, and recently because of Medicare, the patches are from Mylar. These are the worst designed patches i have ever dealt with. The outside protective shield is made of a ridged plastic that does not stick around the edges, they do not conform to the curves of the body. Has none of the people who are responsible for the end product ever heard of plastic wrap or some other flexible product. At...

I have been using lidocaine patches for years Iam now using the brand Mylan and they are horrable ! They don't stick at all they are *** if rite aid and other pharmacys are giving them out then Iam gonna buy mine on the internet there better and cheaper ! Don't use the Mylan brand they do not stick to you skin even tho you are washed and dryed they use a plastic hard film paper that will not stick to your skin ..

Mylan lidocaine patches don't stick and they have a stiff plastic backing that reminds me of the backing of a cheap baby diaper. I had one fall out of my pant leg as I walked (embarassing)! I found them stuck to the inside of my pants and tops, and also on bed sheets. I cut my finger twice while trying to get patches out of their package. It is almost impossible to get patch from it's backing because I have arthritis in my fingers. I went...

Just got these Lidocaine patches this past Friday. The first one did not stick so thought it was a fluke or I did something wrong, tried a second. No luck. Went back to CVS but since the box was opened said they couldn't take it back. Said how would I know they wouldn't stick without opening them. CVS said they had a lot of complaints about the patches. Said to contact Mylan and if they wouldn't do anything to come back and they would order...

Anonymous I just bought the patch and it won't stick and has a expiration date of JUNE 2017. Rite Aid says to contact Mylan directly, which I've done via email through their website. Af...

Anonymous Request the Qualitest or Par patches. Those are much higher quality.

After just 1day using the Mylan Lidocaine patch I already know they are junk. Even tho applied with great care, it fell off after 5 hours! I am now stuck with a 2 months supply. If you use Rite Aid as your pharmacy, this is your only choice. Shop around and find out what other pharmacies have to offer before you waste your money. The pharmacist recommended using the Tegaderm clear adhesive over the patch, but they cost about $4 for each, so...

Anonymous Try to find the Qualitest or Par patches. They are fabric-like and the best quality.

The over the counter ones by aspercream are so much better I took them back to cvs and they ordered me qualietest patches which are wonderful. Easy to apply to my back myself and stay in place. Mylan is a horrible company ( the epipen disaster) don't recommend them at all. Cvs needs to take them out of their stock. The pharmacist told me he gets a lot of complaints about them but cvs is a big corporation and its out of his hands. So if you...

I just received Mylan Lidocaine patches from CVS. They are worthless and I will change Pharmacies ASAP! I called the Manufacturer and they suggested I tape them on! Isn't that equivalent to taping on a bandaid? CVS had the same suggestion. DO NOT BUY! YOU CAN'T GET YOUR MONEY BACK AND YOU CAN'T USE THEM! I have used Watson with great success but can not find a use for Mylan. I have been given instructions on how to apply by CVS and Mylan. Its...

After bathing, I dried myself thoroughly!From the start, the patch would not adhere well and the corners curled backwards which made it easy to peal off with any kind of movement or contact with clothing. Although the patch was on for 3 hours (held on by my waistband on my lower back and by my blouse sleeve on my shoulder), I did not get any pain relief. The patch on my lower back fell into the toilet and the other patch came off when I removed...

Mylan Lidocaine 5% patches are only 5% because Mylan made them thinner. They don't adhere to skin very well and they are hard to pull apart. They are only 140mg of lidocaine compared to the standard 700mg patches offered by Watson, Qualitest and Actavis. The Mylan patches are worthless. My insurance should demand a refund. They just rolled out in 2015 but I can't imagine that someone would think this was a good idea. I ended up with 2 boxes that...

They did not stick to my body. My insurance didn't cover them because of the poor quality. Other brands are cloth. I'd like a refund.

Now, I am told that Rite Aid only has Mylan brand. These patches are like sticking a piece of plastic to your skin. They do not stick and they peel and wrinkle up as you move. You can't wear them under clothes without them showing through or wrinkling your clothes. So, the pharmacist told me I could use duct tape to keep them attached to my skin. I ended up having to use another pharmacy to get an acceptable patch. Lidoderm is the best!...
