No: Demerol (meperidine hydrochloride) has been going out of favor as an oral pain medication for more than a decade. It has more potential side effects and drug interactions than hydrocodone or oxycodone. It can lower your seizure threshold, becoming more dangerous if you have kidney problems. Ask for a different pain reliever.
