Post-caesarean section pain is a problem i n our environment. Though many modalities for pain management exist, there is the need to investigate safer and affordable regimens that will provide adequate analgesia with minimal side effects and with ease of administration.

Its effectiveness and side effect profile in our environment have not been previously investigated.
