What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Description

Lidocaine is a topical local anaesthetic cream and referred to as a numbing medication for the way desensitizes skin and reduces susceptibility to pain or irritation. Lidocaine cream uses include for relief from skin irritations like burns, sunburns, insect bites, contact with plants like poison oak and poison ivy plus treatment of hemorrhoids causing rectal pain or discomfort. Lidocaine is also applied to desensitize skin before a procedure and it’s effectiveness is in blocking nerve signals from reaching receptors in your epidermal skin layer.

Directions

It is simple to apply Lidocaine skin numbing ointment. Begin by removing the cap, then squeeze a small to moderate amount of the cream into your hand, dispensing a size that corresponds to the area of skin where you are experience pain or irritation.

Rub the ointment into the skin until it is fully absorbed and no longer visible on the skin. Repeat as necessary if relief from pain or irritation is insufficient.

Ingredients

The active ingredient in Lidocaine is 2-(diethylamino)-N-(2,6-dimethylphenyl) acetamide.

Cautions

Never use excessive amounts of lidocaine with one application. If pain or irritation is not reduced with reasonable use of the product then it is best to see your doctor. Covering any area of skin with bandages or any type of wrap when lidocaine has recently been applied to that area may result in skin irritation or reduce effectiveness for the product.

Be certain the lidocaine never enters the eyes, mouth, nose, rectum, or genitalia. Lidocaine is only for topical use on the skin.

Lidocaine should be kept out of reach of children or pets. This product can be harmful if swallowed by children or pets. It is best to store lidocaine in a cool, dry place and somewhere that is out of direct sunlight.

Interactions

No interaction risks between lidocaine and any Rx medication or OTC supplements have been identified. However, it is recommended that you do not apply lidocaine to skin that has been (within the last 24-28 hours) recently treated with another topical skin product.

Do not apply lidocaine and sunscreen at the same time.

Side Effects

Side effects from lidocaine cream uses are rare, but some users may get mild irritation at the application site on the skin. More serious possible side effects include severe burning, dizziness or drowsiness after application, stinging, or irritation, swelling or redness, or unusual temperate sensations on the skin.

Should any of these more serious side effects be seen you are to discontinue use and speak to your physician or the pharmacist at the pharmacy where you buy Lidocaine ointment. They may have suggestions for other pain relief and skin numbing treatment options.
