Darvon and Darvocet Complications

After receiving reports of heart issues in Darvon and Darvocet users, the FDA conducted a study to uncover precisely what issues the drug caused. The studies found that Darvon and Darvocet users experienced dangerous heart electrical charges, leading to dangerous heart malfunctions. Another study also revealed that the death rate for Darvon and Darvocet users was higher than that in patients taking similar or stronger pain pills.

Propoxyphene, has been under scrutiny as a dangerous drug for decades but was only recalled when the Darvon and Darvocet study came to light in 2010. Since then, the FDA placed a black box warning, their highest precaution, on the drug, and later recalled the Darvon and Darvocet altogether.

Dangerous side effects of Darvon and Darvocet use include:

  • Abnormal heart rhythms
  • Interruption in the heart’s electrical impulses
  • Heart palpitations
  • Heart attack
