Darvocet And Darvon Have Been Linked To Potentially Serious Or Even Fatal Heart Rhythm Abnormalities In Patients.

The manufacturer of Darvon and Darvocet, Xanodyne Pharmaceuticals Inc., has recalled the medication from the U.S. market at the request of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Darvon and Darvocet are the brand version of the prescription pain medication propoxyphene. The FDA has also informed the generic 
manufacturers of propoxyphene-containing products of Xanodyne's decision and requested that they voluntarily remove their products as well. The drugs have been linked to potentially serious 
or even fatal heart rhythm abnormalities in patients.

If you are seeking a Darvocet lawyer or are interested in filing litigation paperwork, the experienced pharmaceutical injury lawyers at The Voss Law Firm are currently investigating claims on behalf of patients injured from drugs containing propoxyphene.

Darvocet Lawsuit

The FDA sought market withdrawal of propoxyphene after receiving new clinical data showing that the drug puts patients at risk of potentially serious 
or even fatal heart rhythm abnormalities. As a result of this data, combined with other information, including new epidemiological data, the agency 
concluded that the risks of the medication outweigh the benefits.

Studies show that, even when taken at recommended doses, propoxyphene causes significant 
changes to the electrical activity of the heart. These changes, which can be seen on an electrocardiogram (ECG), can increase the risk for serious 
abnormal heart rhythms that have been linked to serious adverse effects, including sudden death. The available data also indicate that the risk of 
adverse events for any particular patient (even patients who have taken the drug for many years) is subject to change based on small changes in the 
health status of the patient, such as dehydration, a change in medications, or decreased kidney function.

Serious or even fatal heart rhythm abnormalities have been linked to Darvocet. Call for emergency medical help immediately if you are experiencing any of the dangerous allergic reactions or serious side effects of Darvocet.

Darvocet and other drugs containing propoxyphene have been recalled from the US market. Talk to your doctor immediately if you have been prescribed and are still taking this drug. Also, let your doctor know if you have previously experienced any allergic reactions or side effects.
