Dr. John Sampson answered:

Will lidoderm patches get you high??

Lidoderm patch high

Lidocaine
Lidoderm patches should not get you high unless you are taking so many that you are getting a toxic level of lidocaine in your system. The toxic effects of lidocaine are more often seen when it is given intravenously but can occur by other routes. Lidocaine toxicity can be very dangerous. Only take medications as they have been prescribed.

Local anesthetic

The most common side effects with Lidoderm are redness, swelling, burning or discomfort at the application site. As well as hives or abnormal sensations. Some serious side effects may include seizures, irregular heartbeat, and hypersensitivity. Although diarrhea could be possible with almost any drug, it is not likely. Contact your primary care doctor if symptoms persist over 4-5 days.

why would lidoderm pain patch have a reaction on a pulse rate?

Unusual

Blood_type
Lidoderm patch causes local pain relief and typically does not enter blood stream or build up levels in the body. I suppose if one used several patches at a time, there might be enough to affect pulse, but this too would be very unusual. Doubt allergic response unless local skin rxtn. Search for another explanation.
