The patches FAIL inherently by design.The carrier tape part does not allow for any air to breath (Why you see band aids have cloth and holes) and when a patch is applied, it causes you to sweat more (a little secrete, iPEOPLE IN PAIN SWEAT MORE!) and the adhesive used apparently does not stick when exposed to sweat, even in the smallest amount it will fall off. The carrier becomes to brittle for any give and feels like I have packaging tape on...

Mylan patches, which are new to the market with Lidocaine, are terrible. They offer almost no pain relief; they do not adhere to the skin; their backing is a cellophane like material which is resistant to flexing and will start to fall off almost immediately once you use that body part. The same is true even when taped on (and there is no reason you should have to tape on a pain patch). There is a better choice for prescription Lidocaine...

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...

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,...

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 are garbage, no wonder my insurance wouldn't cover them and I ended up paying 240.00 for patches that don't work. I'd like a refund. I can't even use them. They don't stick. So basically you put them on and can't move for 12 hours if you want your money's worth. Who can do that?

The Mylan Lidocaine 5% Paiches are garbage. They won't stick to your skin. If there is no adhesive then there can be no lidocaine. My mailorder pharmacy has marked my file to only use Qualitest patches. They also have numerous complaints about the Mylan patches.. Has the FDA been notified? Can we file a class action law suit?

Mylan Lidocaine Transdermal Patch Review

Lidoderm and Watson manufactured lidocaine patch stick to your body and provide pain relief. Mylan's product is like slightly sticky paper. It doesn't adhere to your skin and it doesn't stick, even if you don't sweat, shave the skin, or don't don't move at all. It's so terrible it's totally pointless. The medication cannot delivered transdermally if the patch falls off your body upon contact.

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.
