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...

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...

Darvocet withdrawal
17 Replies RSS
I lost my health insurance and have rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. Unfortunately, my rheumatologist will not see me unless I can pay the $75.00 fee, which i cannot. I had to stop Darvocet when i ran out and now am noticing insomina, night sweats, etc. How long do you think this will last? ## It really depends on how long you have been on it, if you have been taking it for a long time, then it could take as long as two to three weeks. The effects will be mostly mild as long as you weren't using it more than prescribed and they will gradually taper off. Many people have found some over the counter items such as Imodium and Benadryl can help relive the withdrawal symptoms and make them more bearable. ## Your withdrawal could last up to 4 weeks. I was on Tramadol for 2 years and...

Darvocet return to market
12 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...

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...

white darvocet - front of pill has P500 on one side
1 Reply RSS
I found a white pill that has P500 on one side and the other side is smooth. I can only find a pink pill like this white one. So what is this pill? ## Hi Tiffany, Ciprofloxacin is the only remote match I've seen to this description; it's white and oblong, but has P on one side and 500 on the other. I think your best bet may be to contact the manufacturer of the pink version of P500 (Pliva Inc.) to find out if they changed their formula... Reason being is that I've also seen the same situation happen with pain medication tablet colors being changed from yellow to white over recent years, but still bearing the same exact imprint. So it's probably worth a shot. Just for the record, the pink version is identified as generic Acetaminophen (500mg) + propoxyphene napsylate (100...

old darvocet 12 years old
1 Reply RSS
I have left over far over about 12 years old. Can I still use it or is possible that it has become toxic? I need to use it to get me by sometimes but afraid to use in case the composition has changed or if it just gets weaker in strength? Thanks ## Hello, Karen! How are you? Darvocet is not safe to take, at all. It was pulled from the market several years ago by the FDA, due to the risk it created of cardiac dangers, as well as a high number of overdose deaths. Thus, regardless of how old it is, you should dispose of it and see your doctor for a safe alternative. Is there anything else I can help with?
