I think you mean the drug Darvon - No, Darvon is not generic for Darvocet.

Darvocet contains Acetaminophen + Propoxyphene

Darvon is only Propoxyphene.

Dana,

You're right - Darvin IS actually another brand of Acetaminophen + Propoxyphene, basically the same as Darvocet. Encyclopedia actually did say the following:

'In the United States, dextropropoxyphene HCl is available as a prescription with acetaminophen in ratio anywhere from 30mg / 600mg to 60mg / 325mg, respectively. These are usually named Darvocet, Darvin, or Darvon.'

I guess you learn something new every day !
