Why was Darvocet Recalled?
The FDA has issued a recall on Darvon and Darvocet after determining that all painkillers that contain propoxyphene create an unreasonable risk to consumers.
The FDA has also informed the generic manufacturers of propoxyphene and requested that they voluntarily remove their products as well.
The recall was caused by a problem with the drug, not your doctor.
Health care professionals have been asked to stop prescribing propoxyphene to their patients, and patients who are currently taking the drug are asked to contact their doctor as soon as possible to discuss switching to another pain management therapy.
Darvon (propoxyphene) was first introduced in 1957 as a mild pain reliever. Darvocet was introduced as a combination drug that contained both propoxyphene and acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol.
