Gen7T Patch ® is a prescription topical patch containing 15 articulated patches or 10 articulated patches. Lidocaine is present in a 3.5% concentration (w/w). It is chemically designated as 2-(diethylamino)-N-(2,6-dimethylphenyl) acetamide and has an empirical formula of C14 H22 N2 O. The molecular weight of lidocaine is 234.34 g/mol.
The structural formulas are:
Lidocaine is a topical anesthetic and stabilizes the neuronal membrane by inhibiting the ionic fluxes required for the initiation and conduction of impulses, thereby effecting local anesthetic action.
Gen7T Patch ® is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to lidocaine, or any of the topical amide-like local anesthetic preparations or to any other component of the product.
Because of the possibility of sedation, patients should be cautioned regarding the operation of heavy machinery or automobiles, and any activities made hazardous by decreased alertness.
Hepatic Disease: Patients with severe hepatic disease are at greater risk of developing toxic blood concentrations of Lidocaine, because of their inability to metabolize Lidocaine normally.
Allergic Reactions: Patients allergic to para-aminobenzoic acid derivatives (procaine, tetracaine, benzocaine, etc.) have not shown cross sensitivity to Lidocaine. However, this product should be used with caution in patients with a history of drug sensitivities, especially if the etiologic agent is uncertain.
Non-intact Skin: Application to broken or inflamed skin, although not tested, may result in higher blood concentrations of Lidocaine from increased absorption. Gen7T Patch ® is only recommended for use on intact skin.
Eye Exposure: The contact of this product with the eyes, although not studied, should be avoided based on the findings of severe eye irritations with the use of similar products in animals. If eye contact occurs, immediately wash out the eye with water or saline and protect the eye until sensation returns.
External Heat Sources: Placement of external heat sources, such as heating pads or electric blankets, over patches is not recommended as this has not been evaluated and may increase plasma Lidocaine levels.
