Demerol 

Warnings

Before you begin taking a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should take Demerol (Meperidine).

Abdominal (stomach) conditions: Demerol (Meperidine) and other narcotic medications may make the diagnosis of abdominal conditions more difficult or it may worsen these conditions. If you have any abdominal problems, discuss with your doctor how Demerol (Meperidine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Demerol (Meperidine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Asthma and other respiratory conditions: Demerol (Meperidine) may cause increased breathing difficulty for people having an acute asthma attack, or those with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) (chronic Bronchitis, emphysema) or other conditions that affect breathing. If you have asthma or other breathing disorders, discuss with your doctor how Demerol (Meperidine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Demerol (Meperidine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Dependence and withdrawal: As with other narcotics, Demerol (Meperidine) may become habit-forming if taken for long periods of time. Drug abuse is not a problem with people who require Demerol (Meperidine) for pain relief. Physical dependence (a need to take regular doses to prevent physical symptoms) has been associated with narcotic analgesics. Withdrawal symptoms may occur if the medication is stopped suddenly. These symptoms include seizures, irritability, sleep problems, agitation, tremors, Diarrhea, abdominal cramps, vomiting, headache, muscle cramps, extreme anxiety, tension, restlessness, sweating and confusion. If you have been taking Demerol (Meperidine) for a prolonged time, you should stop the medication gradually if it is no longer required for pain control. Discuss the best way to stop Demerol (Meperidine) with your doctor.

Dizziness: Demerol (Meperidine) may cause dizziness when standing up from a sitting or lying position.

Drowsiness/reduced alertness: Demerol (Meperidine) may reduce the mental or physical abilities required to perform potentially hazardous tasks such as driving a car or operating machinery. Avoid these and other potentially hazardous tasks until you have determined how Demerol (Meperidine) affects you.

Head injuries: Demerol (Meperidine) can cause increased pressure inside the head. If you have an acute head injury or other conditions that increase intracranial pressure (pressure inside the head), discuss with your doctor how Demerol (Meperidine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Demerol (Meperidine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Kidney function: Kidney Disease or reduced kidney function may cause Demerol (Meperidine) to build up in the body, causing side effects. If you have reduced kidney function or kidney disease, discuss with your doctor how Demerol (Meperidine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Demerol (Meperidine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Liver function: If you have reduced liver function or liver disease, discuss with your doctor how Demerol (Meperidine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Demerol (Meperidine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Medical conditions: Demerol (Meperidine) may cause increased symptoms for people with Hypothyroidism, Addison's Disease, an enlarged prostate, or urethral strictures. If you have any of these conditions, discuss with your doctor how Demerol (Meperidine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Demerol (Meperidine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Seizures: Demerol (Meperidine) may worsen pre-existing seizure disorders. If tolerance to the medication develops and the dosage is increased substantially above recommended levels, seizures may occur in people without a history of seizure disorders. If you have a seizure disorder or a history of seizures, discuss with your doctor how Demerol (Meperidine) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Demerol (Meperidine), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Pregnancy: Demerol (Meperidine) crosses the placenta and may affect an unborn or newly born baby. Demerol (Meperidine) should not be used by pregnant women prior to being in labour unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Demerol (Meperidine), contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: Demerol (Meperidine) passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking Demerol (Meperidine), it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Seniors: Seniors may be more sensitive to the effects of Demerol (Meperidine) and may require lower doses.
