    Thanks all. I assume you knew I was referring to preggo ladies since I posted in this area right?? We actually are just now down to our last seconal. I know many have been without it for a long time.

    We have given Seconal 100mg with 10mg of morphine.
    Or Nubaine 10mg for sleep but those are all one time doses, not given every night.

    on preggies, we use Vistaril, anywhere from 25 to 100 mg. works pretty well. Some may use Bendryl, 25-50 mg also. Considered relatively safe.

    ambien seems to be the drug of choice for the non laboring pt. we give morphine and vistaril for "prodromal" labors.
