my grandson was recently born and had a blue spell 5 hours after delivery and is now in Nicu.
Nubain (Nalbuphine) should be used with extreme caution during labor and delivery because it may cause breathing problems or irregular heartbeat in the baby.
Extremely unlikely, sounds like you are describing a breathing incedent. Nubain is a very well received, very old, synthetic narcotic. Primary effectors sites are Mu, Kappa, Delta, Sigma brain receptors. All pain receptor sites. Nubain itself, just before going generic, well back in the 20th century, was challenged by a person in California, charging that it was ineffective. FDA investigative authority set to investigate the allegation. Since the drug was soon to go generic the drug companies lost interest, the CA man lost interest but the Government once aroused , never loses interest. The case ground on for years. Finally the report came out and was published, Nubain is not only safe , effective and a correct mapping of the molecule revealed it to be unlike any other synthetic opoid. Non-addicting, low abuse potential, almost impossible to overdose (and then only made you sleepy) no constipation. At that time and ever since no other pain killer, muscle-relaxer tranquilizer, only Nubain is PROVEN by the FDA to work , work well and be totally safe. It was to be released to be OVER The Counter!, the only opoid of any kind to have that kind of safety. Only lack of interest by the drug companies kept us from having that kind of pain relief, at our disposal without the doctors, they hate it, won't prescribe it, won't tell you about it. You would be free of they're hypocrisy, they would lose the almighty control they have over all of us. (Sorry I just came from yet another doctor that will not prescribe it says he's not "comfortable"! I told him how about my comfort, I've got Fibro and Nubain is the only thing that works on it. Hmmm they kill horses don't they... Grrr
