If Darvacet is pulled out of circulation by FDA, is is safe or harmful to take Propoxyphen Apap for pain, being it is a generic of Darvacet? Only take one as needed, not taken for chronic pain.

The recall includes ALL medications containing Propoxyphene, not just the name brands, which would be Darvocet, this no, it is not safe to continue taking the generic, Acetaminophen and Propoxyphene.

They have all been recalled and are will no longer be available on the market, this means those using it will have to speak to their doctors and switch to something else, anyway.

The FDA has forced the recall, because Propoxyphene is cardio-toxic. Fortunately, the effects it has on the heart only last while you are taking it, it goes back to normal, when the medication is discontinued. However, it has harmed many people that were using it and placed many more in danger.

Thus, I sincerely encourage you not to use it and to contact your doctor for a viable alternative, because it is a very dangerous medication to use.
