Meperdine

Were you looking for information about Meperidine? Meperdine is a common misspelling of meperidine.
 
Meperidine hydrochloride (Demerol®) is a prescription drug approved for treating pain. It is a narcotic, opiate pain reliever that binds to opioid receptors throughout the body and produces numerous different effects (most notably pain relief and sedation). Although it was once very popular, healthcare providers now rarely prescribe the medication because it has been shown to produce very serious side effects. The use of meperidine is usually limited to very specific situations in which other medications are not appropriate.
