Pain Medicine Darvon/Darvocet Pulled Off the Market

Documentation shows that deaths from prescribed prescription medications have been the cause of death for over 100,000 Americans annually.[1] The makers of Darvon/Darvocet pulled these two products off the shelves, including generic brands, by order of the FDA. The safety risks it posed to patients were symptoms from irregular heart rhythms to Britain’s ban on the drug because of suicides and accidental overdoses.[2] Proposyphene is the main ingredient in these drugs that has been known to cause accidental overdoses.

Watch out and stay away from these types of pain medications!  Try a holistic herbal pain relief such as ginger, turmeric, rhodiola, chamomile and peppermint.
