Should not b a probl: The Lidocaine patch works topically, that is, locally under the skin where it is applied. Thus, there is little chance of it affecting any other part of the body, hence little chance of interaction with Percocet. I have prescribed Percocet & Lidoderm together without problems. Hopefully, you'll use less Percocet with this combination. Thanks for trusting HealthTap with your question. Bon sante.
