Lidoderm Can This Now Be Prescribed For Lumbar Pain? I Have Used It On My Knees.

Lidoderm Can This Now Be Prescribed For Lumbar Pain? I Have Used It On My Knees.

I was prescribed this before my knee replacement. I suffer with chronic back pain being fused from L1-S1. When I have tried to get a prescription filled awhile ago they told me it wasn’t excepted for back pain.

I used this for back pain worked better than opioid pain pill but insurance comp said only for diabetics and wouldnt cover for back pain. Don't get it?? All this big deal over addiction but find a nerve calmer and insurance people become doctors. I don't understand either 😞😞✌
