What is pethidine?
Pethidine is a painkilling drug. It is also an anti-spasmodic which means that it helps you relax. It's an opiate drug (derived from the opium or poppy plant) so it's rather similar to morphine - in fact, it is a synthetic version of morphine.
Pethidine is often combined with another drug to control sickness (an anti-emetic) because pethidine often causes sickness.
Pethidine during labour is usually given as an injection in your muscle.
