It depends: Naloxone is an opioid antagonist used to reverse the effects of opioid side effects which include slowing of the breathing, nausea, itching among others. This medication is rarely used during pregnancy or for breast feeding women. It may precipitate an acute withdrawal reaction in opioid dependent patients.

Low risk: Epidural placement is safe in most patients and considered a low risk procedure if done by qualified individuals. Risks include death, infection, bleeding, nerve damage, headache, and persistent low back pain. Epidurals are not indicated in patients with active infection, bleeding tendencies, or active bleeding with low blood pressure.

Increases blood flow: Nitric oxide has been marketed as a performance enhancer for athletes - Nitric Oxide increase blood flow to muscles and helps to maintain the 'pumped up' look after lifting weights. Some studies have suggested improved endurance. Arginine is actually the ingredient in the Nitric Oxide that is sold in health and nutrition stores. It is converted to Nitric Oxide hope this helps.
