California Darvocet Attorneys - Experienced Darvon and Darvocet Trial Lawyers
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.
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
- Fatal Overdose
- Difficult Breathing
- Acute Pacreatitis
