 1  For HA No side effects that I could notice Many doctors and dentists prescribe propoxyphene (Darvon, Wygesic, Darvocet) for pain. As a dentist myself who experiences debilitating migraines 1-2 times a month, this drug is no better than 650mg of aspirin and this has been proven.

When I prescribe a pain pill I generally use hydrocodone (Vicodin, Lortab, Anexsia) which is far superior to codeine and propoxyphene. I have also head success with oxycodone (Percocet, and Percodan), and pentazocine (Talacen). Talacen provides excellent pain relief and is under utilized in the medical profession. I also use butorphanol (Stadol) which when used properly gives excellent pain relief. Honestly, I rarely have had anybody who gets relief from propoxyphene.

As a side point many doctors and dentists have been using ketorolac (Toradol) for acute pain. This medication is not only usually ineffective for neural pain, but can destroy the kidneys. It is extremely toxic, avoid it at all cost. Doctors are afraid to use narcotics because of addiction but they must think its alright to destroy their patients kidneys!, L Sanderson, DDS

 1  Back/neck pain Nausea, motion sickness, panic attacks, severe gastric distress This medicine is absolute garbage. Two regular strength aspirin work better on pain than this crap. Way too many side effects and it can easily kill you via an overdose. It should be taken off the market M 33 2 weeks

"The pain is still there, I just don't care" because I'm stoned, but I also can't do anything because I can't focus on anything. M 43 3 years

 3  tooth extraction Slight dizziness, feeling of euphoria, sleepiness My oral surgeon prescribed this drug for me because all opiate derivatives such as hydrocodone make me violently ill.

 4  Migraine None Darvon N has helped me to control my migraines for years, without "rebound headaches" or stomach upset. I am able to take it while I am working, which I could not with other medications. What works for some people, does not work the same for others. It is very important to find a doctor with some training in pain management, and whose job is to relieve patients' pain, rather than live in fear of the DEA. M 51 5 years

 4  I have a blatter disease called IC Dry mouth It also makes me stay awake. It doesn't make me sleep. It wires me a little. Darvon-n does help me I have had this disease for about six years and since this is a cronic disease doctors don't like giving pain medication. This disease is very very painful. Though Darvon doesn't take away all the pain it does help. My only conplaint is that their is not a genaric so my insurance doesn't pay much of the cost. F 35 3 years

 5  bone cancer i absolutly feel no side effects while taking,however,i definetly know when it wears off! so it does work for me. the cancer drs. tell me im crazy,that darvon cant possibly help.well i have been in pain most of my life, began taking darvocet 30yrs ago. it however made my kidneys hurt so i knew it was harming me but it did work.thts when my family dr found darvon for me it worked just as well but w/out the 650mg of tylenol.folks are right though you do build a resistence.i began with breaking in half a 100mg then gradually adding 50mg a time til i got to 300mg. this is a dangerous amount!do not attempt it.but understand i have a baseball sized tumor growing out the top of my skull,its in my neck vertabra,left shoulder cheast wall,both femurs,pelvis,goiter,4 of my back vertabra are completly black on x-ray,one being fractured,the others are bulging ever which way into my spinal cord,my sacrum is unrecognisable as a bone,spots in lungs lastly another baseball sized tumor growing through m i have winged myself off many times and tried whole heartly to take other kinds,but nothing works as well for me as the darvon-n 100.even w/drs telling me i cant possibly get relief w/it. DUH! im the one in pain!dont you think i would take something else if it worked better!? i belive the answer is that we are all different individuals, fearfully & wonderfully made.and different things work differently for each of us.what works for me may not work for you.they should quite trying to put us in the same cookie cutter.so dont be so arogant as to say this drug is garbage & useless.you may have had a negetive out come w/ a product,hey share your story but dont think its the same w/everyone.i have to listen to my body it tells me what works or not. listen to your body.

 5  Acute Rhumatoid Arthritis None, this is a great drug. Was taking codine, which made me a mean bastard. Even I knew I was being a bastard but couldn't seem to help it. Then started taking darvocet, which worked on the pain but I was taking almost 3 grams of acetaminophen along with it. My liver was getting fried. I asked my DR for straight darvon because it had more of the propoxyphene (100mg) and no acetaminophen. I take 200 - 300 mg day, and feel great. Slight euphoria 1 hour after taking it, but not stoned by any stretch. M 43 1 years

 5  Moderate arthritis in hip None I have read all this about Darvon not working any better than aspirin and that is totally not the case with me. It works like magic. I get a slight euphoria from it for about 1/2 hour, but not to the point that I can't concentrate. It takes the edge off my pain so I can walk without a limp and pain. I am getting a hip replacement in a year or two....so this is holding me over until then. I have had no side effects and so far no addiction. I take about 4 pills per day. I have tried everything else and this works the best without the mental confusion the other drugs caused me. F 36 6 days

 5  Lower back pain Slight dizziness sometimes I found this very good. I got an ulcer from anti-inflammatories and then was switched to codeine based medication, which made me sick. I find Darvon N great. I never feel sick and it very effective for me. My doctor (who has been practicing for 50 years)says that people either find it fantastic or like water. F 30 2 years

 5  I am a post-polio I get a little sleepy, but after you take Darvon-N for awhile it wears off. I would say that Darvon-N is the best pain pill out today. When I was taking Celebrex (and I took it for almost 3 years), I felt good but I was getting blood in the stool. Celebrex does this. It is a damaging pill. That is why I switched to Darvon-N. I read so much about it and then asked my Dr. if it were a possibility to change to Darvon-N. She said OK and I have been using it ever since. I feel better just knowing that I'm off Celebrex - a medication that can give you bleeding ulcers and who knows what else. F 75 2 months
