Darvocet is one of the trade names used for Dextropropoxyphene, an analgesic first marketed by Eli Lilly & Company in 1955. Darvocet (also sold as Darvon) has been prescribed both as a mild painkiller and as a cough suppressant.
Darvocet has been linked to a number of adverse side effects, the most serious being heart arrhythmia. In fact, because of the number of deaths tied to the drug, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration initially requested a black box warning (2009), but subsequently called for the discontinuation of all sales of Darvocet and Darvon (2010) because of continued reports of serious and fatal heart arrhythmias.
Other adverse health consequences associated with Darvocet include nausea, constipation, sore throat, itching, drowsiness, impaired alertness and confusion.
