Comparison of two formulations of lignocaine spray with mefenamic acid in the relief of post-episiotomy pain: a placebo-controlled study.


The analgesic effectiveness of aqueous and alcoholic formulations of lignocaine (5%) spray was compared with that of mefenamic acid (500 mg) or placebo in a double-blind study in 103 primiparous patients complaining of moderate or severe perineal pain associated with episiotomy. The results, assessed after a single dose, showed that the aqueous lignocaine formulation provided a level of pain relief superior to that obtained with the alcoholic formulation or placebo, and similar to that obtained with mefenamic acid.
