    Default Propoxyphene VS. Codeine

    What is propoxyphene? How does it compare to codeine, hydrocodone, and oxycodone? I am curious because I have been prescribed Propoxypehen 100 - 650 for my acl surgery and it seems to have an awful lot of aceteminophen per pill.

    propoxyphene is a very weak narcotic painkiller.It is probably best compared to codeine.....Dave

    Why does it have so much acetimenophen in it, that is really my concern.

    The tylenol is the real painkiller here.propoxyphene will make you a bit sedated so the tylenol works better.Propoxyphene is a useless painkiller and should be off the market.It isn't even available here in Canada anymore.....Dave
