Do You Qualify: California Lidocaine Pain Relief Products Class Action Lawsuit Investigation

Lidocaine Pain Relief Products: Who’s Affected?

lidocaine cream false advertising

Manufacturers of “Max Strength” pain relief products containing lidocaine may be misrepresenting the effectiveness of their products. As a result, consumers who purchase them may not be getting a lidocaine product that is as effective as advertised.

If you purchased “Max Strength” lidocaine products and you live in California, you may be eligible to join a free lidocaine class action lawsuit investigation into allegations the products were mislabeled.

Lidocaine is a local anesthetic that blocks signals from nerve endings to provide effective pain relief. Lidocaine is a non-narcotic pain reliever that has become increasingly popular in recent years. Many consumers seeking pain relief purchase the “Max Strength” products from drugstores under the belief that they are stronger than other drugstore lidocaine products. 

Prescription lidocaine products typically contain 5 percent lidocaine. “Max Strength” products reportedly contain just 4 percent lidocaine, which may not be effective for some users. As a result, consumers may have overpaid for a product that does not provide the “Max Strength” relief promised on the label.

Lidocaine ‘Max Strength’ False Advertising Lawsuits

The makers of “Max Strength” lidocaine products are already facing false advertising class action lawsuits challenging their effectiveness.

On May 1, 2021, the makers of Aspercreme pain relief products were hit with a separate class action lawsuit over similar allegations. 

The plaintiff in that class action lawsuit asserts the Aspercreme lidocaine patch is authorized only for temporary relief of pain or itching associated with minor burns, insect bites, and other minor skin irritations. However, the Aspercreme lidocaine patch is advertised as providing targeted relief for major joints.

An IcyHot class action lawsuit alleges there are no credible studies to support claims that the lidocaine products can desensitize aggravated nerves and provide 12 hours of pain relief. The plaintiff alleges that the proposed Class Members would have paid less for IcyHot lidocaine products, or would not have purchased them at all, if they had known the products were not as effective as advertised.

According to a Salonpas lidocaine patch lawsuit, the manufacturer deceptively compared its over-the-counter Salonpas lidocaine patches to prescription-strength lidocaine patches to convince consumers that the OTC products were cheaper but just as effective as the prescription version.

Consumers who purchased “Max Strength” lidocaine products may be eligible to join a class action lawsuit or file one on behalf of others who purchased lidocaine products that may not be as effective as advertised.
