Found a large, oblong, hot pink pill, the number 890 is on one side and 93 is one the other. What is this, please? ## what is this drug, and what is the use? ## wasthb ## I found a large oval white pill with the number 537 on one side and 93 on the other. What is it ## Hello, everyone! How are you all doing? The tablet with the 93 890 marking contained 100mgs of Propoxyphene and 650mgs of Acetaminophen, it was a generic for Darvocet. You can see here in these details, that it was discontinued in 2010 due to the risk of overdose it caused, and the fact that it could cause cardiac dangers, so the risks were found to outweigh any possible benefits it might provide. It was very mild in its pain relieving effects, anyway, so it didn't help a lot of people. Are there any other questions?

Propoxyphene - finding

Which pharmacies will mail propoxyphene 65 (Darvon) to the U.S.? This med is the best for neuropathic pain, and I am able to keep a clear mind, unlike other meds which make me feel drugged. This mild med is perfect for me and doesn't make me throw up like other pain meds. This med was VOLUNTARILY taken off the market in the US, not actually banned. It is not illegal to possess in the United States. I use the kind without acetaminophen to keep any liver damage away. I'm almost out and need to get some more of this med. Please help. ## Propoxyphene and its relatives were removed from the market in the U.S. due to the fact that they can cause cardiac toxicity, so they were deemed unsafe to use.

propoxyphene in india

Propoxyphene is no longer sold in India or anywhere for that matter, as it has been proven to cause heart problems. Darvon/Darvocet is manufactured in India by a number of major pharmaceutical companies there. It's formula includes Paracetemol which is equivalent to acetaminophen, but more potent as an analgesic and less toxic, and also includes in the new formula, tramadol, also a pain reliever. It is manufactured to exactly resemble the same capsule that previously was sold as Darvon, and is very popularly sold and seems more effective. ## I'm sorry, but that is incorrect, there is no difference between Paracetamol and Acetaminophen, they are exactly the same. And the formations that contain Tramadol are not called Darvon or Darvocet, they are Ultram and Ultracet. This is a na...

I found this pill in a forclosed home it is a pink capsule with a R in side of a diamond an 4382 on it and cvs, walgreens, an poison control have no listing for it can u help ## Hi christopher, My research leads me to believe that the pill may be Propoxyphene Hydrochloride (65mg) manufactured by TEVA.
