Answer

Antiarrhythmic Agent, Class I-b

Lidocaine anesthetic (Lidoderm)

Several recent studies have advocated topical administration of lidocaine as treatment of postherpetic neuralgia. Lidocaine gel (5%) in placebo-controlled study showed significant relief in 23 patients studied. Lidocaine tape also decreases severity of pain.
