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.
Responsible Use of Darvon Begins with Knowing Risks, Warnings and Precautions
Darvon should be taken exactly as prescribed. Taking it in higher doses or more often than recommended can lead to problematic use. People who are suicidal or have had issues with prior addictions should not be prescribed Darvon. It can cause dizziness and drowsiness so it’s important for patients to know how it affects them before driving or performing other potentially hazardous tasks. Taking Darvon with alcohol and some other substances and medications can cause side effects, some which can be fatal. Darvon should be used with extreme caution in children and with caution in the elderly, both which can be more sensitive to the effects. Patients should be familiar with all the warnings and precautions that accompany a prescription of Darvon. Being armed with this information can give patients a better chance at avoiding serious problems.
Waismann Method’s Rapid Darvon Detox is Safe, Humane and Discreet
Regular use of Darvon or other opiates can lead to physical and/or psychological dependence. The onset of opiate withdrawal symptoms indicates the presence of a physical addiction. This is treated easily, safely and humanely by the Waismann Method. Patients sleep lightly under general anesthesia during our medical detox. It uses intravenous medication to cleanse the Darvon from patients’ opiate receptors. It takes less than two hours to get patients free of opiate addiction but we require a total hospital stay of 2 to 4 days. We never use opiate replacement drugs to wean patients off other opiates. These include methadone and Suboxone which are opiates and can also be habit-forming. Our rapid detox for opiates is thorough and renowned in the field for its programs. For those patients who feel they need to extend recovery, we offer our Domus Retreat transitional living facility. Patients who stay with us at Domus receive compassionate and supportive care along with access to therapies including biofeedback, counseling, massage and relaxation.
