when I take this my vision is severly impaired, I try to read and the words blur, I get severe pain in my abdomin like cramps but 100 times worse... this stuff is dangerous and DOES NOT help the pain at all.

I took this medication in generic form (Propoxyphene-Acetaminophen 100/650mg) on 06/18/2010 for pain of my left index finger that I had surgery on. I took one evry four hours starting the 18th, June, 2010, a Friday. I started to experience, a few hours later, dizziness, slowing motor skills, confusion, an overall "stupor" and developed a hard time with relating to people talking to me or me to them. I called the doctors office on Sunday, the 20th (Fathers day) and was told by the doctor on call to go to the emerency room, which I did. I was NOT suppose to be given this drug as I have depression, have had a heart attack, and take medications such as those to sleep for my insomnia. I showed the doctors office my "up to the date" list of medications before the surgery on a pre operation in the doctors office on 06/14/2010. I could have died. I was in and out of this stopor feeling for about 6-8 weeks.

Have taken Darvon compound 65 for 50+ years for migraines. It will not kill a migraine, but if taken soon enough, will significantly reduce 75% of the time and then allow normal functioning. I take oxycodone for increased pain, but then i sacrifice normal thinking/functioning. People overdose on everything. it is just a matter of self-control and understanding your own personal drug reactions.

I have so many back problems it's not even funny. This medicine does next to nothing for me. Might as well be taking a pink vitamin.

100% effective, no side effects

I took the medication for knee and hip pain and it has virtually no effect. I accidentally took two 650 pills and still it provided little pain reduction. I did have feelings of flushness and slight dizziness. Have not used it for any other type of pain.

I have been using this to control spinal pain (stenosis and spondelosis) fibro and found it helps more than even when I was taking Oxycontin which I stopped on my own and switched back to Propo-N 100-650

This pain medication is basically useless and a waste of time. I put 1 notch below asprin.
