Has anyone used the lidoderm patch?

it was prescribed for back pain. Does it work? Are there any bad side effects.

I have a resident at the nursing home that I work in who is using it and has had very good luck with it. She has pain issues in rib area and low back and these have helped her wears them for 12 hours on and 12 hours off, we do cut the patch and apply to both areas. She loves it and we have tried many pain medications for this pain we first issued for pain from herpes zoster (shingles) doctor thought we would try it as he felt nerve endings were where her pain was. Never hurts to try and it is much better than being addicted to a narcotic pain pill if it works for you forgot the web site check it out
