50mg tramadol to Demerol (meperidine hydrochloride)?: Meperidine (Demerol) 50 mg was superior to tramadol 50 mg for acute pain relief in patients with suspected renal colic when given intravenously. Because many patients in both groups received supplemental meperidine and the response to tramadol alone cannot be predicted, clinicians may want to choose higher doses of meperidine alone or other alternative combinations. ...Read more

Pretty Rare: I can only think of one case I have seen in the past 10-15 years in which secobarbital was being used. In general, the barbiturates have too many difficulties associated with their use to still be commonly prescribed.

For the future, consider supporting therapy to optimize the Rx help. ...Read more

complicated issue: Demerol, (meperidine hydrochloride) however much it may be helping you, is a terrible drug with awful side effects, especially in higher doses. Many authorities, myself included, believe it should be off the market. Finding a pain physician who will ignore your addiction history (however long in the past) and prescribe Methadone is taking some serious risks. Very few pain specialists prescribe demerol- get a 2nd opinion. ...Read more

Discuss this with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
