Demerol Withdrawal

Demerol is a narcotic analgesic with effects similar to morphine; the most prominent of these involve the central nervous system and organs composed of smooth muscle. When prescribed it is used for relief of moderate to severe pain. Demerol is addictive. When the user repeatedly uses Demerol they build a tolerance to the drug and this creates both a mental and physical addiction. When an individual forms an addiction to Demerol they can no longer function without it. Demerol addiction is devastating not only to the individual physically but emotionally as well.

Demerol Withdrawal symptoms include but are not limited to:

  • severe anxiety
  • insomnia
  • profuse sweating
  • muscle spasms
  • chills
  • shivering
  • tremors

Demerol Withdrawal symptoms can occur four to five hours after the last dose. Demerol Withdrawal symptoms usually last 7 to 10 days. Individuals who are unaware they have a Demerol addiction may respond to the pain of withdrawal by taking another dose of Demerol.
