To ease the pain of child birth... what drugs are available?
Epidural is a common drug to reduce the pain of labor. It's a form of local anesthesia that provides continuous pain relief to the entire body below the belly button.
Many women also receive narcotic drugs during delivery, sometimes in combination with an epidural. Drugs such as butorphanol (Stadol) and sublimaze (Fentanyl) will block pain in the body and areusually injected through an IV.
Pain medications, including the drugs like morphine and meperidine, can be given intravenously to reduce pain throughout the entire body.
