medications may be needed to treat side effects of opioids. Antinausea medications are considered safe, with ondansetron and other 5HT-3 blockers, dexamethasone, and metoclopramide preferred over more sedating medications, although prochlorperazine and promethazine are likely to be safe as well 48,49 (III- IV).

In general, it is preferable to avoid taking concentrated plant extracts repeatedly for medicinal purposes during pregnancy, due to uncertainties about their effects. Some drugs with an adverse harm-benefit balance for pregnant women or the unborn child should be ruled out.

Where additional drugs are available, sole use of haloperidol for extreme emergency could be considered unethical. Addition of the sedating promethazine has support from better-grade evidence from within randomised trials. Use of an alternative antipsychotic drug is only partially supported by fragmented and poor-grade evidence. Adding a benzodiazepine to haloperidol does not have strong evidence of benefit and carries risk of additional harm.After six decades of use
