Darvocet Overview

Dextropropoxyphene[3] is an analgesic in the opioid category, patented in 1955[4] and manufactured by Eli Lilly and Company. It is an optical isomer of levopropoxyphene. It is intended to treat mild pain and also has antitussive (cough suppressant) and local anaesthetic effects. The drug has been taken off the market in Europe and the US due to concerns of fatal overdoses and heart arrhythmias.[5] Its onset of analgesia (pain relief) is said to be 20-30 minutes and peak effects are seen about...

Have the same pills. The label on the bottle said: Darvocet-N 100. No longer manufactured. ## Hello, Craig! How are you? Thank you for the helpful post! This medication contained Acetaminophen and Propoxyphene. Propoxyphene and it's related drugs were all removed from the market several years ago, due to the dangers it caused of risky cardiac events, some of which resulted in death. It was also very commonly overdosed by many people, along with the risk it carried of being habit forming. Are there any questions or comments?

Where To Purchase Darvocet

I have spinal STENOSIS and need Darvocet. I cannot take aspirin or Non Inflammatories. I have a script from my doctor. ## I'm sorry, but Darvocet has been removed from the market in the U.S., Canada and most other countries. It contained the active ingredients Propoxyphene and Acetaminophen and the Propoxyphene was found to be cardiotoxic. Learn more: I'm very surprised that your doctor wasn't aware of this information. There are, however, other narcotic analgesics on the market that contain Acetaminophen, rather than NSAIDs, so you may want to discuss using on of them with your doctor. Percocet, which contains Oxycodone and Acetaminophen is the most commonly used. Are there any other questions or comments? ## There is nothing wrong with Darvocet. Just some people who overdo...

PAIN what medicine will help

Fibro, CFS, osteo, haven't been able to get relief since they took Darvocet off market. Was on time release morphine for 2-3 years this worked. Take gabapentin 400mg am & pm. Obviously not working. Elavil 50 mg nite. Do acupuncture, chiropractor helps. If I'm active then I nose dive it immense pain. Epsom salts bath helps. Have Vicoden 350mg, if I take it on a regular basis I itch then have to take a shot of benadryl. I'm 71 and would like part of my life back. Is there anything that will help? ## Hello, Lyn! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in so much pain. Has your doctor made any other suggestions? There are other options you could try, such as Oxycontin, Oxycodone regular release or Dilaudid. They are all classified by the FDA as narcotic analgesics, s...

My husband got 2 teeth broken down to gum. He was in so much pain he went diving through medicine cabinet found old darvocet from 1997 took 2 of them. I'm freaking out since I saw date on them. Will these hurt him should I take him to hospital have his stomach pumped? Help im scared! ## No, they don't turn into anything toxic, once they're expired. They just start to lose efficacy, so they don't work as well as they would have when they were new. The best thing to do is to keep a close eye on him. This medication was pulled from the market by the FDA a few years ago, because they do create a risk of cardiac dangers, though it's usually only temporary, while someone is being treated with them. So, if he starts to experience an erratic heart beat, or anything, then he...

Substitute For Darvocet
18 Replies RSS
My Dad is taking Tramadol in place of Darvocet. He took Darvocet for 20 years no side effects, now he is taking Tramadol and is good for pain but his blood pressure is going high and he has arrythmia and terrible depression. I think this pill has problem working with Paxil, Atenolol, Norvasc and Digoxin and should not be given together or adjusted. Why are doctors not aware of this and what else could he or should he be taking? Confused and upset! I f Darvocet cause heart attacks then why could he take it for 20 years without problems and now with Tramadol the safe one he's having all these troubles. ## Well, first of all, no medication is absolutely safe, they all carry risks. Now, the next question is, how long has he been off the Darvocet and did he stop taking it abruptly? Darvo...

white oblong pill with 93-490 on it. was supposed to be a sub for darvocet n 100.....made my wife throw up all day and night taking for a broken ankle ## This is a generic for Darvocet, it contains 650mgs of Acetaminophen and 100mgs of Propoxyphene. This is a narcotic pain reliever, so nausea is a very common side effect, along with: dry mouth, constipation and drowsiness. ## Also perscribed for pain of a broken ankle. Made me very dizzy and violently throw up. After that one dose I threw the rest out and did very well on ibuprofin!!!! ## I have a torn Achilles tendon and it works great for the pain, especially good when I take it with a couple of Bud Lights! ## it isnt effecting me. i took 1 dose of this after my wisdom teeth extraction, and it didnt effect me. no change in the pain in...

round white tablet has a symbol on one side resembling a v or a square root symbol the other side has the numbers 2355 ## this is a darvacet it causes you to feel a sence of uphoria. carful! this is the second most powerful pill! ## What is the 1st most powerful pill, just wondering. ## INCORRECT THIS IS NOT DARVOCET NOT EVEN CLOSE Pill Image This is Acetaminophen 325mgs, Butalbital 50mgs and Caffeine 40mgs, a generic Fiorcet used to treat certain types of headaches and migraines. The other poster, apparently, does not know much about drugs. Darvocet IS NOT the second most powerful narcotic out there, it is actually the MILDEST Unless you can be certain of a drug ID, you should not post a response like that. What if this person thought you were right, took this med, thinking it was Ac...

Darvocet return to market
3 Replies RSS
I have given Darvocet to patients for over 50 years. It is much superior to the codeine addicting medications. I have been unable to find any pain medication as effective as darvocet on medium acute or chronic pain. How can we get this medication back on the market? ## Darvocet and it's related medications will not be returning to market in the U.S. or Canada. On top of the severe issues that caused it to be pulled from the market, it has been replaced with safer and more effective medications. First, it was just as addictive as other narcotic opiates, including codeine and yet was found to be nowhere near as effective as the others that are available. Second, it was found to be cardiotoxic, thankfully, most issues it caused were reversible, when the medication was discontinued, but...

my step daughter said that her mother gave her a hot pink oblong pill and said that her mother said it was a pain killer. but my step daughter said that it wasnt anything like her fathers that is darvocet and he gets the brand name and generic due to back injury so what else could it have been ## Sorry, without knowing the markings that were on the pill, it is impossible to say. There are many generic Darvocet's available, some are hot pink and they do not all look the same, so it is possible that is what it was, or it could have been something as innocuous as over the counter Benadryl, which also comes in a hot pink tablet. ## I would like to know the identity of a pill I have that is Hot Pink and oblong, capsule shaped but NOT a capsule that can be pulled apart to spill the conten...
