ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE: PETHIDINE

Pethidine is a commonly employed opioid analgesic. It used to be quite commonplace in childbirth, although like any opiate derivative it may have a suppressive effect on respiration and is therefore no longer encouraged because of the risk to the foetus or baby.

Commonly found in the emergency medical bags of doctors, pethidine can be used in emergency and for pain with great relief and safety.
