What is Darvon

Darvon is a narcotic analgesic prescribed to treat mild to moderate pain relief. It is the brand name for Propoxyphene and is available in tablets and capsules. It works on receptors in the brain to decrease pain. It can be taken safely and successfully by patients but carries a risk of causing habitual behavior. Patients who become dependent upon their prescription medication are not to fault for this. So often, a legitimate prescription for pain relief becomes problematic when a tolerance develops. This can happen with regular use over a period of time and means the drug’s effects on the body become diminished. Instead of talking to a doctor about options and alternatives, many patients make the mistake of escalating use to achieve pain relief. There are strong warnings that accompany Darvon because of risks that include addiction, overdose and the possibility of developing a difficult withdrawal syndrome when use is stopped. As with all prescription medications, the use of Darvon can also cause a variety of side effects, allergic reaction and interactions with other substances.
