    Dear Sirs,

    We want to add to this text that we have studied the painkilling substance propoxyphene (DXP) since 1993. Now FDA says that ONE NEW STUDY made them stop Darvon. We have informed FDA about our research since 1999-2000, they know about our 9-10 scientific articles about the substance, we also wrote two doctorial dissertations (2000 and 2001) in Sweden.

    Our research was behind the decision in UK, Sweden and The European Union (EU) to stop the drug. Go to this link,

    Our references are nrs 21-26

    I took Darvocet for quite a few years.

      Hi Sue, did you experience any negative side effects from taking Darvocet?

    While on Darvocet I was very depressed and was taking up to 3 times recommended dosage. I wanted to kill myself but everytime I tried my family would walk in the room before I could take a handful of pills.

      Hi Chris, We've been hearing a lot of similar stories about Darvocet since both Darvon & Darvocet were officially pulled off the market. I'm not sure why you were taking up to 3x the recommended dosage–were you told to do that? Regardless, even with the recommended dosages, there were clearly some bad Darvocet side effects. Given that and given your experience, it may be worth it to submit a claim for a lawyer who specializes in Darvocet lawsuits to review–you can do that (for free) by filling out the form here and submitting it.

    My dad took one dose of Darvocet in 1976. Within a half hour he was hallucinating and went into a coma. He died a few days later, the death certificate said congestive heart failure. The drug was just recently pulled from the market and proven to cause these kinds of deaths, is it too late to file a law suit in California where he died?

      Hi Janice, I'm sorry to hear about the story of your father–and considering the time that has since passed, and the fact that the memory of what he had taken (Darvocet) and that of the subsequent chain of events are still vividly with you, it was undoubtedly a very unexpected and emotionally upsetting time. I saw you also submitted a claim–and that's exactly the thing to do to find out if perhaps you might be able to file a Darvocet lawsuit. Only a lawyer who specializes in Darvon and Darvocet litigation can best review your details and make a determination as to whether you might have a lawsuit.
