What is Demerol?

Demerol is the brand name for Meperidine Hydrochloride.  It is classified as a narcotic used to relieve severe pain.

Adverse Effects of Demerol

Demerol has been found to be habit forming.  Physical and psychological addictions and withdrawal symptoms have been found in testing.  The effects on pregnant women have not been fully studied, but Meperidine Hydrochloride is known to cross the placental barrier and thus can affect developing fetuses.  Meperidine Hydrochloride can also be passed onto newborns by breast feeding.

Current Status of Demerol

The FDA recommends following your physicians recommendations to avoid any complications, such as addiction or passing the drug onto your child. 

If you have developed adverse reactions to Demerol without being informed of its possible side effects, you should consider speaking with an experienced products liability lawyer.  A products liability attorney can help you recover damages for your injuries.
