On November 19, 2010, Darvon and Darvocet manufacturers, Xanodyne Pharmaceuticals Inc., began to withdraw their two widely distributed medications in response to studies that linked their defective drugs to abnormal heart rhythms. Abnormal heart rhythms are serious, and potentially fatal, which has given those who are experiencing these dangerous Darvocet side effects the ability to pursue a claim to receive substantial compensation for their injuries. If you are suffering from ailments that you believe to be caused by using these defective medications, contact one of our Darvocet lawyers today to receive a free consultation and information pertaining to your case. We routinely represent clients of dangerous or defective products.

Darvocet Side Effects

Darvocet contains both propoxyphene and acetaminophen and has been associated with serious and life-threatening injuries for years. As an opiod used to treat mild to moderate pain, Darvocet has also been subject to discussions of drug dependency amongst many of those who use it. According to the F.D.A., Food and Drug administration, most patients who received Propoxyphene were using Darvocet.

According to the consumer advocacy group Public Citizen, propoxyphene taken in the form of Darvon and Darvocet has been linked to over 2,000 deaths and has little use as an effective painkiller. Several attempts have been made to urge the F.D.A. into banning Darvocet, instead requiring the drugs manufactures to conduct a safety studies to analyze Darvocet's potential to kill.

Those studies ultimately concluded what Darvocet side effects lawyers have been tracking for years; that Darvon and Darvocet can affect the heart, and may be life-threatening for some of those who use it. That study found that recommended dosages can cause significant changes to the electrical activitiy of patient's hearts. Since then the F.D.A. has required Xanodyne Pharmaceuticals to include new warning labels, but have yet to outlaw the medication. The following are a list of Darvocet and Darvon side effects that have been reported by patients.

  • Heart Attack
  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Arrhythmia
  • Fatal Overdose
  • Difficult Breathing
  • Coma
  • Acute Pacreatitis

If you are suffering from any of the listed symptoms, or you are using Darvocet and feel that it is contributing to your injuries, it is in your best interest to contact an experienced defective drug attorney immediately.

Hold Defective Drug Manufacturers Accountable

Those who manufacture medications have a responsibility to provide a reasonable level of safety for those who will be using them. If Xanodoyne pharmaceutical's defective Darvocet is responsible for your injuries, holding them accountable will require defective drug attorneys with experience and success against major corporations. We believe that our successful defective drug lawsuits encourage manufacturers to take greater care in the production of their products, which may save lives in the future.
