3 years ago was given an od of demerol while hospitalized. I also had a morphine drip but my veins were too thin for the iv which kept falling out, so whether that drug would have worked or not is unknown.
Am about to have internal surgery and am afraid to go back on demerol. Any suggestions? Also post-op for some reason vicodin doesn't work, codeine works some as does Lortab but not like vicodin used to. Any suggestions would be very appreciated.

Morphine is a common post op pain med while in the hospital. Demerol is being used less and less these days. Morphine is your best bet... Good luck... Dave
