My doctor says that it it is addicticitive,and he does not not like to like to prescipe it to to me for that that reason.
Demerol is an Opioid. All Opioids are addictive. Pretty simple. Most doctors don't like prescribing Opioids due to the FDA as well as the potential for addiction. It is not however addictive if you follow your doctors instructions, and don't take more than is recommended. If your still in pain, then you simply make an appointment with your doc to have the dosage increased.
Hope that this is of some help!
