Demerol -vs- Fentanyl
| Jonathan
I passed a 1 cm kidney stone while on Demerol with no pain whatsoever. After a later surgery (cranial) they gave me Fentanyl and the stuff hardly worked at all. I ended up asking for hydrocodone which was more effective. But I've never had much luck with morphine, either. It's odd how a painkiller can work for some but not for others.
