The main effect of this was almost hallucinogenic. I could not tolerate the odd thoughts and visual disturbances - but it provided almost no pain relief - which was prescribed post-op. Returned to surgeon and got a replacement within the week. Darvon is on my "never again" list.

I have a combination of diagnosed back issues and nothing I have come across has ever worked as good as Roxicodone 30 mg blue tablets. For those of you out there with similar ailments, I recommend them highly. Darvon and similar products such as Darvocet pack a dangerous punch to your kidneys and liver with high levels of acetaminophen. This can be avoided by taking Roxicodone or Oxycodone.

I,m allergic to NSAIDS and codiene and have very few choices and this drug works for the pain caused by a spinal fusion that healed badly and the pain fron Deg. disc disease. As I age and the pain gets worse I will have to go to something stronger but Darvon takes the edge off and has never given me a problem.

my cousin took this medicine for pain control from an car accident, and overdosed on it and died. I wouldn't recommend this drug or any drug with propoxyphene in it to anyone.

I kept waiting for approval for Lyrica for fybermyalgia from my pharmacy company...finally, I took some Darvon I had on had for another "pain problem" every 5 hours and it made me forget how much pain I had been in! I don't like the side effects I just read on this site though!!!
