A wide variety of drugs can be used in pain pumps; they include 1% lidocaine, 1% lidocaine with epinephrine, 0.25% bupivacaine, 0.25% bupivacaine with epinephrine, 0.5% bupivacaine, and 0.5% bupivacaine with epinephrine and baclofen (and probably more). The type of drug used apparently depends on the type of pain being experienced.
