Were you looking for information about Demerol? Demoral is a common misspelling of Demerol.
Demerol® (meperidine hydrochloride) is a prescription pain medication that is classified as a controlled substance in the United States. It binds to opioid receptors throughout the body and produces numerous effects, most notably pain relief and sedation. The drug can be taken by mouth (tablets and oral solution) or given by injection into a muscle, under the skin, or through an IV. Although this product was once very popular, it is now rarely used (due to serious side effects).
