I'm 10 weeks preg and my doctor doesnt ahve an on call. Anyone know if Lidocaine back patches are harmful?

My sciatic nerve is hurting me so bad. I went to the dr on Thursday, he just told me to take Tylenol, 650 mg every 4-6 hours. Its not helping at all. Ive tried a heating pad and cold ice packs. Nothing. My MIL has these patches...anyone know if it would be ok for me to use? Any advice helpful, thanks!

  • Do you have any 24 hour pharmacies in your area? If you can find one (even if not in your town) the pharmacist should be able to answer your questions.

    Search the brand or generic name of the drug in question :)
    Hope you feel better soon!
