Initial Dosage for Pain Management
The dosage should be modified based on the degree of the pain and the patient’s response. While subcutaneous administration is fine for one-time use, intramuscular administration is suggested for recurrent doses. If intravenous administration is necessary, the dosage should be reduced and the injection should be done slowly, preferably with a diluted solution.
Adults: 50 mg to 150 mg intramuscularly or subcutaneously every 3 to 4 hours as needed for pain is the normal dosage. Elderly patients should be given meperidine at the lowest dose possible and continuously monitored.
Children’s doses range from 0.5 mg/lb to 0.8 mg/lb intramuscularly or subcutaneously, up to the adult dose, given every 3 to 4 hours as needed. Order 100 mg/mL Demerol injectable solution online
Therapy titration and maintenance
Titrate DEMEROL Injection to a dose that produces appropriate analgesia while minimizing side effects. Continue to monitor patients taking DEMEROL Injection for the development of addiction, abuse, or misuse, as well as the maintenance of pain control and the relative occurrence of adverse events [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)]. During periods of changing analgesic requirements, particularly initial titration, frequent communication among the prescriber, other members of the health and care team, the patient, and the caregiver/family is critical.
If your pain worsens after you’ve stabilized your dosage, try to figure out what’s causing it before raising your DEMEROL Injection dosage. Consider lowering the dosage if you’re experiencing too many opioid-related negative effects. To get the best results, adjust the dosage.
DEMEROL Injection has been discontinued.
When a patient who has been taking DEMEROL Injection on a regular basis and may be physically dependent no longer requires DEMEROL Injection, reduce the dose gradually, by 25% to 50% every 2 to 4 days, while watching for withdrawal signs and symptoms. If the patient develops these signs or symptoms, increase the dose and taper more slowly, either by increasing the interval between decreases, decreasing the amount of change in dose, or both. In a physically dependent patient, do not stop using DEMEROL Injection suddenly [see Warnings and Precautions (5.13), Drug Abuse and Dependence (9.3)].
Adults: 50 mg to 100 mg intramuscularly or subcutaneously 30 to 90 minutes before the start of anesthesia is the normal dosage. Elderly patients should be given meperidine at the lowest dose possible and continuously monitored.
Children: 30 to 90 minutes before the start of anesthesia, give 0.5 mg/lb to 1 mg/lb intramuscularly or subcutaneously, up to the adult dose. Order 100 mg/mL Demerol injectable solution online
