Darvocet was taken off the market in November 2010, because the acetaminophen can cause severe liver damage and potential for allergic reactions like itching, rash, swelling of the throat, face, and mouth. It is used to reduce mild to moderate pain with or without fever. Darvocet belongs to a class of prescription drugs known as narcotic analgesics, or “opioid analgesics”.
Darvocet relieves pain by affecting how the brain perceives or senses pain. The acetaminophen increases the effect of the propoxyphene. It can cause a physical and psychological dependence in some people. When you take it for a long period of time, you will most likely develop an addiction. If you know someone that may be abusing it, seek professional advice; it could be fatal. Some of the overdose symptoms include vomiting, nausea, drowsiness, jaundice, dark urine, fainting, seizures, shallow breathing and even coma.
Driving while under the influence of drugs, especially Darvocet, can be deadly, because there is a lack of attention, impaired reflexes and possibility of loss of consciousness. Drinking alcohol while on Darvocet can increase your chance of having liver damage. There are some physical allergic reactions of taking Darvocet; some are swelling of your face, hives, swelling of your throat and lips. If you miss a dose don’t double up, wait until it is time for your next dose.
