Darvocet-N 50 (acetaminophen / propoxyphene) for Pain: “I liked Darvocet's because they helped my pain and didn't make me sick. The other ones don't help my pain as well and make me sick.”

Darvocet-N 50 (acetaminophen / propoxyphene) for Pain: “This medication was taken off the market in favor of tramadol. Darvocet was found to cause dysrrhythmias even in small doses. Several people died.”

For Pain: “I used this for back pain which worked for me. The FDA recommended going to oxycontin or Oxycodone which are way more dangerous and addictive and the abuse numbers soared. My Dr chose tramadol which the government has not scheduled and it is causing more problems but i had a few darvocets when I had a tooth which need pulling but had to use antibiotics first tramadol no relief. But the few pills of darvocet got the pain down and my last supply”

Balacet (acetaminophen / propoxyphene) for Pain: “My sister suffered fatal respiratory failure from this pain med. Propoxyphene, on the market one minute, off the next, sounds like-and it is a warning enough that propoxyphene containing products such as this one can yield the dangerous adverse effects.”

Darvocet-N 100 (acetaminophen / propoxyphene) for Pain: “This is the ONLY pain killer I can take due to Epilepsy as other pain killers cause allergic reactions or intolerance. Having been on Darvocet or its generic formula; even in spite of the anti-epileptic medications in addition to the medical conditions including MVP (cardiac) which would put this medication on the "shelf" exceptionally quick. Suffered no side effects or seizures at all. Therefore must also add having had this prescribed for minor to major injuries to sprains or strains. All my medications are carefully organized, whenever Darvocet is used, a schedule is configured out as not to rock the boat. Must add that Physicians trusts me with this where titration I can do myself from half to quartering and off.”

Darvocet-N 100 (acetaminophen / propoxyphene) for Pain: “I used it for years as an intervention medicine to break cyclical migraines. I only needed it a couple of times a month, but when I needed it, nothing else worked. I'm currently nonfunctional without it, as I am either allergic or non responsive to other medications.”

Darvocet-N 50 (acetaminophen / propoxyphene): “Darvocet has been helping me with back and fibromyalgia pain for many years. I take it sparingly and only when absolutely necessary. It has minimal side effects and since I take it only at bedtime, I do not have drowsiness in the morning. I sleep well and have lessened pain for about 2 - 3 hrs in the morning. I am lost without this help. My md gave me ultram which does not help and causes dizziness in the morning. Everyone is different.”

Darvocet-N 100 (acetaminophen / propoxyphene) for Pain: “I have been on and off this drug in some form for over 40 years. I have had no problems of any kind. I am taking generic Butalbital Comp-Codeine #3. I can barely tell I have taken anything, my pain is still so bad. I have never gotten as good a result with their products.”

rheumatoid new shut in December 19, 2010

Darvocet-N 100 (acetaminophen / propoxyphene) for Pain: “I have had rheumatoid arthritis for 40 years. I got it at age 4. This medication has now been taken off the market and I am finding my world getting very small. I have taken it for the past 12 years, no heart problems at all. My doctor has given me Vicodin and I'm a mess. Darvocet let me control pain by how much needed on good or bad days without the side effects of these other medicines. I can't believe there is no other medicine on the market that works the way this one does, allowing me to live a more normal life. Why couldn't they have allowed long time users to continue. ”

Darvocet-N 100 (acetaminophen / propoxyphene) for Pain: “I have been given Darvocet N100 for years, to treat different pain situations. I was started on a 4/day regime, since being diagnosed with severe fibromyalgia 6yrs ago. Darvocet has allowed me to deal with the daily pain, and inability to perform activities of daily living. Other medicines have severe side effects for me, and even though the Darvocet does not completely take away the pain, it diminishes the raw nagging pain, so that I can move around. Now that it has been pulled from the market, I see a backslide into the previous state where all I could do is lay in bed or on the couch. Other medicines just don't do it for me. I never had any side effects with the Darvocet, and it did not bother my stomach.”

For Pain: “For menstural pain and ovarian cyst. I agree with the doctor's post. This pain medicine is better for long term chronic pain and not acute pain. When I get these pains it is pretty sudden and this medicine isn't strong enough. No side effects.”

Darvocet-N 100 (acetaminophen / propoxyphene) for Pain: “I have a herniated disc and a bulging disc. I've taken Darvocet for over a year. I can't take Vicodin - it makes me throw up constantly. I have no problems with the Darvocet. Some days I take none, some days up to three. I have no problem not taking it (no addiction). It does not work for my migraines. I take Midrin for those, but they are rare. I am able to function perfectly at work taking Darvocet, and if it weren't for the Darvocet, I might not be able to work full time. ”

For Pain: “I had this prescribed for pain after back surgery. It seemed to do nothing to relieve the pain on the day of surgery (which was outpatient.) I intended to ask for something stronger, but the next day the pain had diminished to the point where I didn't need anything.”

For Pain: “Take Darvocet for my Fibromyalgia. Take it in the morning and I am pain free for the rest of the day. The only side effect I experience is constipation. Great medicine! I have been on it for 3 years. I use it in combination with Pamelor. I feel human again! ”

For Pain: “I cannot STAND Vicodin, anything with codeine, etc., but recently I had to have a lumbar puncture (spinal tap) and was one of the unfortunate 10% who got the resulting "spinal tap headache." I've given birth and I swear a spinal tap headache is more excruciating. I desperately needed something for the pain, but refused stronger narcotics as they make me really sick to my stomach, so my doctor gave me Darvocet. After taking it, I felt like I just had a normal, bad headache, which given my previous condition, was a huge relief. I could actually stand up straight and walk after taking it. Though it didn't completely ease the pain, it certainly made it quite bearable.”

“I have been on Darvocet N-100 for about 30 years for rheumatoid arthritis. It has controlled most of the pain except when I'm in a full fledged flare up. I take it with methotrexate (which controls my arthritis) and now my insurance company has denied to pay for it. I did send a letter from my doctor and they still denied it. I know this drug works for me and they suggest I change to Percocet which they pay for and it doesn't work so guess I just endure the pain. Thanks Darvocet for the pain free years.”

Darvocet-N 100 (acetaminophen / propoxyphene) for Pain: “This is okay if you have a minor headache but it's very weak. I had a Hematoma when I was pregnant and they would only give this to me and it still didn't get rid of the pain and that was PAINFUL. Thought I was having a miscarriage when it first came on. I would definitely not recommend this for anything other than headaches.”
