It depends on the kind of pain and the person. Some people react differently to different drugs.
However, for most severe pain, Demerol is usually the better choice.
You should consult you physician. Yes. If you are on methadone as a maintenance pain medication, there are other pain meds you can take for breakthrough pain, or to boost the effects of the methadone. One that is commonly prescribed to take with methadone is meperidine (generic Demerol) and phenergan. The Demerol is a narcotic pain med, and the phenergan potentiates (boosts) the effectivenes of the Demerol, as well as preventing the nausea that some people experience when taking Demerol. There are other pain meds that can be taken with methadone, but your doctor can best advise you on them, depending on your medical condition.
Demerol is a narcotic pain reliever similar to morphine. Methadone is a synthetic opioid used as an analgesic and and maintenance anti-addictive.
For pain, Vicodin, for drug addiction treatment, methadone
This drug class includes drugs such as oxy-codon, methadone, and meperidine (Demerol).
no no Demerol is pain killer
Very good. Everyone has different experiences and preferences, but I know many people who prefer methadone for pain relief above all other medications.
No, if anything methadone should alleviate your pain. But numbness and pain are not associated with methadone use.
Demerol is in a group of drugs called narcotic pain relievers. It is similar to morphine. Demerol is used to treat moderate-to-severe pain.
Many pills that are considered pain killers are opiates. For example, Vicodin, Demerol, Codeine, Hydrocodone, Heroin, Lorcet and Methadone are all considered to be opiates.
No one can predict which narcotic will satisfactorily control pain. Some people react badly to Demerol, but negative reactions are possible with any strong medications for pain. Demerol is best for acute pain, such as immediately after surgery. But there are many other narcotic and non-narcotic medications better suited to chronic pain.
dosage of demerol
Demerol (meperidine) is a good pain medication for most with kidney pain. It is often combined with an antiemetic (antinausea medication) such as phenergan.
what will help for pain while withdraw from methadone
Demerol is very strong but it is better used for short-term pain relief. Vicodin is supposed to be for long-term pain relief like every 6 hours or so. If you want instantaneous pain relief, go for Demerol. If you want Vicodin, it might take an hour or so to kick in, which really sucks sometimes
Methadone is for people who need help getting off heroin/opiates. For pain(methadone) pill addiction depends on the doctor. They also use methadone as a pain killer.
well because some people such as myself have true chronic pain which makes it hard to function on a daily basis, and methadone is better for your liver than most narcotic pain killers
methadone is not astrong killer
hydrocodone aka. sumtin like vicodin is more of a painkiller then anything and makes u calm. Demerol is like morphine. its a muscle relaxer/anti depressant and a pain killer.vicodin is the ultimate for pain killing but if u wanna feel real good demerol is my choice
There are many pain meds without Tylenol in them-I will list some for you Roxicodone(Oxycodone) OxycontinMSContin(Morphine) Dilaudid DemerolDuragesic(Fentanyl) Opana(Oxymorphone)Methadone These are a few off the top of my head,but there are many more....
Definately 30mg oxycodone!!!
No. Take one or the other. Mixing pain medications together is never a good idea.
hydrocodone or oxycodone are both safe for break thru pain while on methadone
