Lean Away From the New ZTlido Rx Lidocaine Patch

ZTlido (zee-tee-LYE-doh) will be the latest lidocaine patch option.

It's a 1.8% Rx patch that joins 5% Rx (Lidoderm) and OTC (Salonpas 4%, LidoPatch 3.6%, etc) patches.

But don't expect to keep ZTlido on formulary. It will be touted to adhere to skin better than the Lidoderm patch...and provide the same total amount of lidocaine. But there's no proof ZTlido works better...or sticks better.
