Darvon Recall – Darvocet Recall

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

The FDA has issued a recall on Darvon and Darvocet after determining that all painkillers that contain propoxyphene create an unreasonable risk to consumers.

The FDA has also informed the generic manufacturers of propoxyphene and requested that they voluntarily remove their products as well.

Health care professionals have been asked to stop prescribing propoxyphene to their patients, and patients who are currently taking the drug are asked to contact their doctor as soon as possible to discuss switching to another pain management therapy.
