    I use this shot as a last resort for relieving Migrains. It has worked better than percoset etc. It has always worked when taken. I take it with fimigan because it can cause neasua.

    Ihad a migraine and had to go to the hospital. The nurse gave me demerol and it worked after two doses. Made me sleepy but took the pain away. She also gave me phenegran for nausea which was a blessing.
