Learn about Propoxyphene PPX

Propoxyphene is a synthetic opiate and a narcotic pain reliever originally used to treat moderate to severe pain. Its most popular prescription forms are called Darvon and Darvocet. In November of 2010 the FDA recommended that the drug be discontinued due to the “risk of cardiac toxicity.” The FDA found that the drug changes the electrical activity of the heart significantly and concluded that the risks outweighed the pain relief benefits of the drug. This, however, has not stopped the illegal abuse of Propoxyphene.
