Nervoderm 5%w/w Lidocaine Patch 5
Nervoderm is clinically proven to provide targeted relief of shooting, stabbing and burning nerve pain associated with medically diagnosed post-herpetic neuralgia.
Nervoderm contains the active ingredient lidocaine (lignocaine) which provides 12 hour relief from nerve pain associated with medically diagnosed post-herpetic neuralgia without causing any numbness. Patients in a clinical trial averaged 50% pain relief by day 7.
Nervoderm provides relief in 2 ways:
Lidocaine (lignocaine) absorbs into the skin to reduce the transmissions of pain impulses from nerve endings in your skin and relieves pain.
The hydrogel patch forms a protective barrier providing a soothing effect at the site of application.
Nervoderm is non-drowsy and can be used with other pain medications.
Always read the label, use only as directed, if symptoms persist see your healthcare professional.
