Darvocet Side Effects

Table of Contents

Side effects associated with use of the prescription painkiller Darvocet are similar to those associated with opiates. Darvocet is the combination of acetaminophen and propoxyphene, used to manage mild to moderate pain. Propoxyphene can be habit-forming and lead to physical and/or psychological dependence. Darvocet can cause side effects that impair reaction time and thinking. It’s advised that Darvocet be taken with caution when performing tasks such as driving, operating machinery or other actions that require alertness. The medication comes with instructions on use, abuse, risk for dependence, side effects, allergic reaction, overdose and possible withdrawal symptoms. It’s important to read this information so you know how to take it safely and what to expect.

Darvocet Side Effects Can Range from Mild to Severe

Darvocet should be taken exactly as prescribed. Misusing it in any way can be dangerous. You should seek emergency medical help immediately if you experience any of these signs of allergic reaction: hives, difficult breathing or swelling of the face, lips, tongue or throat. Side effects can include sedation, euphoria, dizziness, fatigue, depression, tremors, sleeplessness, anxiousness, flu-like symptoms, upset stomach, dry mouth, pupil constriction, itching, hallucination, delirium, sweating, muscle and bone pain, confusion, extreme irritability and muscle spasms. Severe side effects can include severe respiratory depression, confusion or stupor, coma, clammy skin, circulatory collapse and cardiac arrest. Constipation is one of the most common side effects of opiate use. It can be relatively mild and temporary but can also cause a blockage which can be severe.

Waismann Method Offers Safe, Discreet Darvocet Detox

Regular, prolonged or excessive use of Darvocet can cause physical and psychological dependence which need to be treated medically for best, safest results. The Waismann Method of rapid detox offers a humane and discreet Darvocet detox that is safe, effective and quick. Our approach is compassionate and completely confidential. Our in-hospital anesthesia-assisted procedure takes less than two hours and uses intravenous medication to cleanse the Darvocet from patients’ systems. This happens without the use of opiate replacements such as methadone and Suboxone. During the procedure, the patient sleeps lightly under deep sedation and awakes without the awareness of the accelerated withdrawal that occurred. The procedure is quick and patients remain in the hospital for two to four days for around-the-clock monitoring. Our Domus Retreat transitional living facility is also available to provide continued care in a tranquil, relaxing environment. Here, guests can continue recovery with counseling, massage, nutritional support from a personal chef, biofeedback and other therapies.
