What Does Generic Demerol Look Like?

Demerol® (meperidine hydrochloride) is a narcotic, opioid drug. It has a significant potential for both psychological and physical dependence and abuse. It is classified as a controlled substance, meaning there are special rules and regulations for prescribing and obtaining the medication. Since this drug is commonly abused and generic versions of the drug may be cheaper, a common question is, "What does generic Demerol look like?"
 
Generic Demerol tablets, like the brand-name tablets, are round and white. However, because generic versions of the medicine are made by several different manufacturers, the markings on the tablets will vary (this helps to identify the tablets).
 
If you have any medication that you cannot identify, it is a good idea to call a local pharmacist. Pharmacists are usually able to look up medications based on their shape, color, and markings. Many pharmacists will be more than willing to help you identify medications, although they may be less willing to help if they suspect you may be abusing the medication.
