- Popular Pain Killers Darvocet and Darvon Recalled | Legal News | News Ticker
Pain killers are more popular now than ever as more and more people seem to encounter the need for these medications. As a result, there are more options appearing on the American market than ever before, and unfortunately for many people, some of these pain-killing drugs encounter serious problems. Two such popular drugs, sold under the brand names of Darvocet and Darvon, have been recalled by the manufacturer after the FDA concluded that the presence of an ingredient in these medications posed an unreasonable health risk.
Xanodyne Pharmaceuticals, Inc., the manufacturer of Darvocet and Darvon, announced the recall in conjunction with the FDA after it was discovered that those who took these medications could have faced a heightened risk for heart attacks and other heart problems. The reason for this risk is because of the presence of propoxyphene. This ingredient has been linked to the development of several different types of heart problems when it was ingested by patients, and this led to the decision to pull these medications from the market.
Specifically, the FDA has issued public warnings and even ordered the manufacturer to place a warning on all labels of this medication after initial reports of Darvocet and Darvon side effects began to surface and were studied. Additional analysis of these medications revealed thatpropoxyphene led to an increased risk with problems regarding irregular heart rhythms. This problem can lead to heart attacks and heart failure in some patients, and eventually the risk was deemed to be too great when compared to the reward.

Liz was great
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
My paralegal , Caroline , was on top of her game - very responsive and always answered any questions I had and in a timely manner . My attorney Rob ,was the best attorney I ever had . He explained everything in great detail and had a great sense or humor . He really knows how to bring light To tough , unfortunate situations - I would absolutely recommend them at anyone -
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
