The Dangers of Darvon
Seeking Compensation for Injured Individuals
Darvon is a widely prescribed analgesic that contains the painkiller propoxyphene. People who have taken Darvon and experienced adverse reactions may qualify for injury compensation. A qualified attorney should be consulted if you became ill from Darvon to find out if you are eligible for damages to cover injury-related medical treatment, pain, suffering, emotional trauma, and lost income. Studies show that the manufacturers of drugs containing propoxyphene knew about the painkiller’s harmful effects, and failed to inform the public of the dangers of taking Darvon, Darvocet, and similar medications.
In 2010, Darvon was taken off the market after studies showed that propoxyphene created heart rhythm abnormalities such as:
- Atrial fibrillation
- Irregular heartbeat
