Are Lidocain patches safe during pregnancy?

My mom is pregnant and her doctor presribed her Lidocain patches for her back. This is NOT her OBGYN and she didn't tell them she was pregnant because she didn't think it was that big of a deal but I'm a little concerned about this.

Has anyone ever used these while pregnant?

  • Mine say to consult a doctor if pregnant. And my doc told me to discontinue the use of them in pregnancy. But that is us...she needs to call and check.
