It is also prescribed as a topical skin patch to numb ongoing nerve pain (neuralgia). Lidocaine can also be used to treat certain heart rhythm problems in emergency situations. It is sometimes used illicitly as an additive substance that is cut into other street drugs, like cocaine or crack. It is marketed under the street name included here.
