Darvocet Overview

Dextropropoxyphene[3] is an analgesic in the opioid category, patented (1955)[4] and manufactured by Eli Lilly and Company. 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 1.5-2 hours after oral administration.[1] Dex...

Substitute For Darvocet
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...

hot pink pill what could it be
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...

Darvocet worked for me
I have had chronic pain for over 20 yrs. After trying every kind of pain mgmt under the sun, I had a spinal laminectomy. The dr gave me Percocet and various other pain meds and finally Darvocet. It worked like a charm. I took it as needed for 10 yrs with no problems. I found nothing else that I could tolerate, then contacted Lyme Disease. My dr tried several different pain meds (along with lyme treatments) and again nothing I could tolerate. Now it saddens me to say that I have to take morphine (MS Contin ER). I am scared to death I will never be able to stop taking it. Hope those responsible for taking Darvocet off the market are happy. ## I agree, darvocet was a good pain killer, I remember Darvons! Then they went to darvocet. The prob with morphine is that you will need more and more...

Taken old darvocet
I took one that is very old. Will I get sick ## Hello, Scoby! How are you? How old was it? Medications can lose effectiveness over time and this one also carries the risk of causing cardiac toxicity. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

darvocet in USA
When will darvocet n be available again? ## Hello, MJ! How are you? I'm sorry, but Darvocet has been permanent removed from the market, due to the fact that it was found to cause cardiac toxicity and there were also many cases of overdose fatalities. It would be advisable to speak to your doctor to see what would be a safer alternative for you. Is there anything else I can help with?

Darvocet return to market
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...

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...
