Pediatric and Off-Label Indications for Lidoderm

Can Children Use It?

Lidoderm is not approved for use in children. Talk with your child's healthcare provider about the benefits and risks of using Lidoderm in children. For households with young children (or pets), it is especially important to dispose of used Lidoderm patches in a safe manner, as even the used patches contain enough medication to harm a child or pet.

Off-Label Uses of Lidoderm

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Lidoderm for something other than treating postherpetic neuralgia. This would be known as an off-label use. At this time, using Lidoderm to treat any other type of pain would be considered an off-label use.
