Pregnant women with pain that is severe enough to warrant pharmacological treatment (self-administered or prescribed by attendants) represent a challenging group as medicines given to them almost always cross the placenta. While most medicines are safe, there are particular times of concern, notably the period of organogenesis (week 4-10) and just before birth. Where possible, nonpharmacological treatment options should be considered, use only one drug at the most effective dose and do not use medications that can generate pharmacological interaction. Ongoing analgesic use requires close liaison between the health professional managing the pregnancy and the health professional managing the pain. Medicines that may be prescribed during pregnancy have been categorized according to fetal. This work makes a review of the most frequently used medications for pain management and its adverse effects reported in the short and long term.

Palabras llave : Acute pain; analgesia in pregnancy; medications in pregnancy; management of pain in pregnancy.
