Darvoset has worked very well for me in the past but was told it has been banned. I received Tramadol 50 mg to replace Darvoset but it makes my head feel out of it and makes me constapated. I can not take nsaids they make me weeze.
Darvocet-N 50 - Is there another pain reliever that works like Darvoset?

I do not know exactly what the difference is between Darvocet-N 50 and N-100. But N-100 was the type I used. I never had any side effects, and it worked!!!
Funny, that's what Darvocet did to me. See if your Dr will try you on Morphine Sulfate, but DO NOT consider Methadone.
In my experience Darvocet is a very mild painkiller. Maybe you could try Ultram (which I believe is something like tramadol). Or if your doctor is willing Percoset 5/325 which would also give you the benefit of the aceteminophen (sp?) (tylenol). If they are too strong you could take 1/2 which I would compare with 1 Darvocet. Discuss this with your doctor. Unfortunately though, a lot of the painkillers cause constipation. I take a stool softener every night to avoid that side effect and it works like a charm. I hope this helps. Wishing you patn-free days! Lisa Z.
Probably the drugs closest to Darvocet would be the tramadol you have already tried and possibly Tylenol #3 which is acetaminophen and 30mg of codeine. Have you tried Tylenol #3? Darvocet was a chemically different drug than most opioids so it is hard to find a replacement.
what do you take when U R allergic to acetaphemin and NSAIDs? I used to take Darvon-the original- good for broken bones, etc. Helped with the severe pain from IBS cramps- later the stupid darvocet came out-of course it caused liver problems- I told the idiots that I couldn't take the darvocet-- Take it- I took one they stared at me for a half hour-said I was just fine. An hour later I was in the ER connected to IVs.
I'm also prone to seizures so tramadol isn't a good fit. I do well with codeine-if I could just have 3 codeine when they think my arm is broken or something. I don't need pain management-just something to break pain--I'm not a quiet person-that was just fine with the military-but the civilians and the DEA--- so I use self-hypnotism---
Darvocet-N-50 is a narcotic pain reliever and Tramadol is not. I have 2 herniated disc in my spine and was taking Darvocet for about 6-7 years before the FDA removed it from circulation. At that time, my doctor switched me to Vicodin, which is also a narcotic pain reliever and works just as good as the Darvocet did. You will not find any relief from Tramadol or any other non-narcotic pain medication, believe me when I tell you this I've tried them all with no success! hope this helps.
