Darvon is the brand name for propoxyphene, a relatively weak painkiller that has been on the market for decades. On November 19, 2010, the FDA announced a Darvon recall after determining that the risk of Darvon side effects outweigh its health benefits. The recall came after the FDA analyzed data linking Darvon to potentially fatal irregular heart rhythms, a condition known as heart arryhthmia.
If you have taken Darvon or Darvocet, you may be entitled to compensation through a Darvon lawsuit for injuries such as
- Heart Arrythmia
- Heart Attack
