Intravenous injection of Propofol causes pain at the site of injection. Aim of this study was to compare the analgesic effect of two drugs (Tramadol & 2% Xylocard) in ameliorating Propofol injection pain. The study was randomized and prospective. 100 adult patients of both sexes of ASA status 1 & 2 were randomly assigned into 2 groups of 50 each, where Group 1 received Tramadol intravenously & Group 2 received 2% Xylocard intravenously 1 minute before injection of Propofol. The efficacy of the analgesic effect of Tramadol & 2% Xylocard was compared in ameliorating Propofol injection pain. It was observed that 2% Xylocard has got more petent analgesic action compared to Tramadol (P value < 0.05).
