There are a number of possibilities for the drugs used based on the patient's condition and the preference of the anesthesiologist.
There may be no drugs given preoperatively or a pain-killer may be given such as paracetamol.
Intra-operatively the drugs used may be propofol, opiates such as morphine, anti-sickness eg cyclizine, ondansetron. Post-operatively, pain-killers eg morphine, tramadol, paracetamol.
These are only a few of the many drugs available for this type of case.
