Drug Information:
Naropin is an anesthetic (numbing medicine) that blocks the nerve impulses that send pain signals to your brain. Naropin is used as a local (in only one area) anesthesia for a spinal block, also called an epidural. The medication is used to provide anesthesia during a surgery or C-section, or to ease labor pains. Naropin may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide. Before receiving Naropin, tell your doctor if you have ever had an allergic reaction to any type of numbing medicine. Learn more
