Can you tell me about orally ingesting a lidocaine (lidoderm) patch?

In brief: Not recommended

The lido patch is developed to deliver acontinuous dose of Lidocaine over a period of time.
Opening the lido pouch and putting it on the skin that way or eating it will result in a larger than expected dose entering your body than it should have. It may b possible to get toxic, it would depend on the dose of Lidocaine in your patch.
