In brief: See below

Not sure what you are referring to.
If the question is are epidural injections for sciatic pain relief, then yes they are safe. If the question is wether spinal manipulation for sciatica under anesthesia is safe, then i would caution no.

In brief: Generally yes

Anesthesia required for any treatment or condition is usually very safe.
This of course depends on your overall health and conditions.

In brief: Yes

Usually, an epidural anesthetic is given for the alleviation of sciatic pain or sciatica.
In expert hands epidural anesthesia is a safe procedure. Anesthesiologists are experts in epidural anesthesia and some anesthesiologists also sub-specialize in pain medicine.
