Darvon and Darvocet Painkillers Pulled From U.S. Market

Xanodyne Pharmaceuticals Inc., the manufacturer of the painkillers Darvon and Darvocet has agreed to stop marketing those drugs in the Untied State. A new study has linked Darvon and Darvocet to serious and sometimes fatal heart rhythm abnormalities.

This action was taken at the request of the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA also asked makers of generic versions of the drugs’ active ingredient, propoxyphene, to stop selling it.

Both Britain and the European Union pulled these drugs off the market in 2009.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
