Thanks for asking!: Not really, Lidocaine is a local anesthetic and is not monitored with drug tests.

No: If Lidocaine is detected in your urine and you have a doctor's prescription for Lidoderm it should not be seen as a inconsistent result.

No: The active ingredient in Lidoderm patch is Lidocaine which is a local anesthetic and not a controlled substance. So, it is not tested for in a drug screen.
