Darvon

( Darvon Compound, Darvotran, Darvocet, Darvocet-N, propoxyphene )

 

Darvon:

32 mg, 65 mg pink capsule

 

Darvon Compound :

32 mg gray / pink capsule

65 mg gray / red capsule

 

Darvocet-N:

50 mg, 100 mg dark orange, coated, capsule-shaped tablet


Purpose

Mild pain relief.

 

Indications

For short-term use in decreasing mild pain.


Dosage

One-half grain ( 32 mg ) or one grain ( 65 mg ) every four hours as needed for pain.


Side effects

These drugs are widely promoted and widely used with a reasonably good safety record. In some cases, side effects may be due to the aspirin or other medication in combination with the Darvon. Most worrisome to us has been the mentally dull feeling that many individuals report, sometimes described as a gray, semi-unhappy fog. Others do not seem to notice this effect. side reactions include dizziness, headache, sedation, paradoxical excitement, skin rash, and gastrointestinal disturbances.

 

Special hints

Darvon is not anti-inflammatory and is thus not an aspirin substitute. The pain relief given is approximately equal to aspirin in most cases. The drug is more expensive than aspirin or acetaminophen. It can induce dependence, particularly after long-term use.
