  • Common: itching, redness or flaking of the skin following application (note: the majority of patients experience no significant adverse events following patch application).
  • NOTE: serious side effects are, in general, related to accidental toxicity of medication by applying considerably more than directed by your doctor or pharmacist or by ingesting the contents of the patch or using this patch in conjunction with other lidocaine containing products.
  • Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take. This includes prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
  • Avoid excessive alcohol usage, since it may increase the potential for Central Nervous System (CNS) effects such as dizziness, confusion, lightheadedness and orthostatic hypotension.

Adults and children 12 years and over:

Apply 1 patch to the affected area of intact skin. Gen7T Plus Patch® should be removed after 12 hours of continuous use and remain off for at least 12 hours.

  1. Determine area of patch application. If the pain area is smaller than the patch, patches may be cut into smaller sizes with scissors. Safely discard the remaining unused pieces of cut patches where children and pets cannot reach.
  2. Remove the transparent release liner (clear plastic backing) before application of patches to the skin. Apply immediately after removal from the protective envelope.
  3. Apply 1 patch to the affected area so that the patch covers most of the painful area. Apply patch only once during each 24-hr period (12 hours on / 12 hours off).
  4. Remove patch if irritation occurs.

Gen7T Plus Patch ® (Lidocaine 3.5% / Menthol 7%)


Gen7T Plus 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. Lidocaine has an octanol: water partition ration of 43 at pH 7.4, and has the following structure:

** Lidocaine**


Menthol is present in a 7% concentration (w/w). The chemical name is (1R,2S,5R)‐2‐isopropyl-5-methylcyclohexanol. The empirical formula for Menthol is C10 H20 O with a molecular weight of 156.27 g/mol. Menthol contains colorless, hexangonal crystals, usually needle-like; fused masses or crystalline powder with a pleasant, peppermint-like odor. It has a melting point between 31O C to 36O C and has the following structure:

** Menthol**


Gen7T Plus Patch ® uses an adhesive hydrogel technology containing lidocaine 3.5% and menthol 7%, applied to a flexible woven polyester backing and protected by a plastic film. The protective film is removed prior to application to the skin.


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.

Menthol has local anesthetic and counterirritant qualities. It also acts as a weak kappa (ĸ) opioid receptor agonist. Menthol chemically triggers the cold-‐sensitive TRPM-8 receptors in the skin, which are responsible for the well-‐documented cooling sensation that occurs when applied to the skin. Menthol’s analgesic properties are not fully understood; however, they are mediated through a selective activation of ĸ-opioid receptors. Menthol also blocks voltage-‐sensitive sodium channels, reducing neural activity that may stimulate muscle tissue.

Menthol works by targeting the k-‐opioid receptor on the TRPM8 neuron. The TRPM8 neuron is normally activated at temperatures between (8°-28°C). Menthol causes the neuron to fire at temperatures above normal activation, which triggers the characteristic cooling sensation. Also because of menthol’s specific targeting of the k-‐opioid receptor, it is endowed with analgesic properties.

Lidocaine is an amide-‐type local anesthetic agent and is suggested to stabilize neuronal membranes by inhibiting the ionic fluxes required for the initiation and conduction of impulses.

The penetration of Lidocaine into intact skin after application of patch is sufficient to produce an analgesic effect, but less than the amount necessary to produce a complete sensory block.
