Darvocet Side Effects Information

Mar 16, 2011

Darvocet, which combines propoxyphene with common pain killer acetaminophen, can be dangerous due to new data that suggests that the drug can lead to possible heart rhythms causing death.

According to the FDA, 10 million people took a form of the drug in 2009 and "Over a five-year period, the number of drug-related deaths was approximately 16 deaths per 100,000 prescriptions..."

According to the consumer advocacy group, Public Citizen, the FDA should have demanded that the drug be withdrawn sooner, and blames the delay for at least 1,000 to 2,000 deaths in the U.S. If a loved one has suffered heart rhythms causing death due to use of Darvocet.
