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...

PINK PILL

found a bright pink oblong pill with #324 on one side. ANY IDEAS? ## sounds similiar to darvocet n-100with is like a glorified tylenol. it is considered a low dose narc. ## Currently, the only match I can find for this manufactured by Chain Drug Marketing Associates and they list it as containing 25mgs of Diphenhydramine, it is sold under the name Qc Complete Allergy Medication, a generic, or store brand of Benadryl.

Darvocet return to market

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...

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...

pink pill?

round rectangle pink 93 on one side 068 on the other ## I found two pills in my hotel room that are oblong shaped and salmon pink. The only markings on each are a big P underlined. Just curious what it is? ## I think the marking was possibly 93 890 and it was a generic for Darvocet, which was manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals, and contained 100mgs of Propoxyphene and 650mgs of Acetaminophen. It was a very mild opiate narcotic used to treat pain. The FDA had it removed from the market due to the high risk of overdose, and the risk of cardiac dangers that it caused. It also carried the risk of being habit forming, and could have cause other side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. Savvy, I am sorry but with that obscure imprint, I can't be sur...
