Can Lidoderm patch on lower back cause constipation? I also take Ultram50mg. How safe is it to take a colace (docusate sodium) twice a day indefinitely?

In brief: Constipation concern

Constipation is a common side effect of Ultram, but not of Lidoderm. Change in bowel habits is a concern, and is best evaluated by your doctor, who will perform an examination and order appropriate tests.
