Jane4321 Posted April 28, 2004 Share Posted April 28, 2004 I have been reading some information about demerol and I was wondering if anyone else by any chance is taking demerol for pain control. I was given hydrocodone but it made me sick also the duragesic patch made me very ill, I ended up dehydrated and my back was wrenched from all the illness since then I was taking percocet but had to take 2 for it to effect the pain any then I was switched to demerol that seems to help my chest and back pain pretty well, I'm just worried about the possible side affects I also read it helps to restrain the cough and I do notice since I quit taking the demerol on a regular basis (one every 4 hours) that my cough has gotten worse. Lately I have been only taking it in the mornings after my kids are off to school and then again at night before bed and in between there I take motrin (800 mg) Any feedback on this would be great. The next step up would be morphine and I'm not sure I want to go that far. Thanks for all your support and information you all I don't know who else to ask and I know a lot of you are going through the same stuff.
