Darvon and Darvocet Injury Lawyer in New York for Heart Problems

Frank J. Dito, Jr.
Car accident, personal injury and workers’ compensation attorney serving Staten Island and Brooklyn New York.

Darvocet and Darvon have been recalled by the FDA and will probably be staying off of the pharmaceutical market for some time to come. The FDA in a recent study discovered that Darvon, Darvocet and other propoxyphene based drugs put patients at a potential risk for severe side effects such as abnormal heart rhythm. 

History of Propoxyphene Based Drugs

Propoxyphene based drugs were introduced and approved by the FDA in 1957 as an opioid used to treat mild to moderate pain. The drug since then has been sold under various names including Darvon, Darvocet (a mixture of Darvon and acetaminophen), PP-Cap, Balacet, Propacet, Propoxyphene, and Wygesec. Currently an estimated 10 million people take Darvon, Darvocet or a generic form of the drug containing propoxyphene

Dangerous Side Effects of Darvon, Darvocet and Other Propoxyphene Based Drugs 

If you have been a victim of heart problems from Darvocet, Darvon or Propoxyphene it is important to understand how you have been effected. Darvon and Darvocet were recently taken off of the market because of the recent findings by the FDA which show a strong and serious risk of heart toxicity and arythmia issues.
