I have been taking darvocet for 10 yrs and have never had a side effect. This is the only pain reliever that I can take because of my ulcers and diverticulitis. I also take this for my arthritis. What am I suppose to take now?

I am in the same boat. I cannot find a substitute for Darvocet n/100. I have tried Tramadol and Oxycodone. I get Restless legs Syndrome from other meds.

Sorry, but it's unfortunate that no one cares. Millions of people have taken this med for pain and because they cannot take other meds.

One solution is to find a global source; there is always an answer.

There were two primary reasons why all medications containing Propoxyphene, and its relatives, were removed from the market.

The first being that it was found to cause more harm, than benefit, due to the risk it created of adverse cardiac events, some of which were fatal.

The second being the increasing number of overdoses, which occurred due to it being so mild that it didn't help many people with pain, so they would keep taking more to try, and get relief. This frequently resulted in an overdose of the Acetaminophen, which it contained.

For the FDA to allow a medication to remain on the market, the possible benefits must outweigh the potential risks, when that doesn't apply, or is found to no longer apply, they rescind approval.

Additionally, it was found that newer medications are safer, and more effective.

I know this doesn't help with your issues, I am just stating the reasons it is no longer available.

Have either of you found another option that helps you, yet?
