Hi all

I was wondering if you have experience with using lidocaine plasters in children. a pain specialist from mewcastle recommended it fo r a pt.

it is not licensed (on top of being non-formulary) and can't locate dosing in BNFC (even though it is there as a preparation)

 

Thank you

HI Celine,

It hasn't crossed our path yet - who from Newcastle advised it?

If they wanted to use it in Newcastle we would make them request it as a one off formulary request as its not on formulary for children and so not covered by governance.

Hi Nicola

 

This is what I am planning to do (it is non formulary in our trust for all ages)however, I can't find reference to dosing any where, Would you use a whole patch, part of it, leave on for how long etc.?

I know it is a pain specuialist (no name)

 

Thanks

Celine
