Also known as Meperidine, Demerol is a highly potent narcotic pain killer that is generally used after the birth of babies or some surgeries to reduce the amount of severe pain the patient is in. When the drug is used in a controlled hospital environment the risk for addiction is relatively low, but when the drug is taken by users at home, it is often more difficult to quit using Demerol without the help of an addiction treatment facility. Other names for Demerol are “Juice” or “Dillies”.
How to Tell If Addicted to Demerol?
If you are using Demerol as prescribed, then there is no problem, but most health care physicians have stopped prescribing Demerol due to his high rate of addiction. If you find that you are participating in illegal activities to acquire Demerol, you need to seek help immediately.
