Drug Facts

Darvocet when abused is taken orally, chewed, crushed (then snorted like cocaine), or crushed (then dissolved in water and injected like heroin).

The usual dosage of Darvocet is 100 mg propoxyphene napsylate and 650 mg acetaminophen every 4 hours as needed for pain.

Darvocet is habit forming and should only be used under close supervision if you have an alcohol or drug addiction.

Darvocet binds to the pain receptors in the brain so that the sensation of pain is reduced.

Darvocet Addiction
Effects

Darvocet is prescribed to relieve mild to moderate pain, as well as treating fevers. Darvocet is a combination of acetaminophen and propoxyphene. Propoxyphene is a centrally acting narcotic analgesic agent. It works by changing the way your body feels pain. The propoxyphene in Darvocet, if taken in high doses or with other drugs has been associated with numerous drug-realted deaths. The acetaminophen in Darvocet can also be hazardous and cause liver damage; do not take more than 4000 mg of acetaminophen per day. Individuals who use Darvocet should not take it in combination with any of the following: alcohol, tranquilizers, sleep aids, antidepressant drugs, or antihistamines. Additionally, individuals who are prescribed Darvocet should not take larger doses, take it more often, or for a longer period than their doctor tells them due to the risk of forming a Darvocet addiction.

With propoxyphene's similarities to methadone, it is not surprising that many individuals have formed an addiction to Darvocet. In fact, the medical journal Clinical Pharmacology even argued that propoxyphene's (one of the most potent components of Darvocet) "most prominent effect...may be its addictive quality." Darvocet produces psychological and physical addiction like other narcotics, and treatment for Darvocet addiction is much the same, too.

Prescription drug addiction, such as an addiction to Darvocet, is often difficult for friends and family to recognize. Contrary to popular belief, one need not abuse drugs daily to have a problem with addiction; the pattern of abuse may be occasional or habitual. The abuse is usually an intensely private affair between the abuser and a bottle of pills, in this case Darvocet. And, the pilltaker is not subject to the social stigma associated with the shadowy world of street drug dealing.

The following are symptoms of Darvocet addiction:

  • Showing relief from anxiety
  • Changes in mood—from a sense of well-being to belligerence
  • False feelings of self-confidence
  • Increased sensitivity to sights and sounds, including hallucinations
  • Altered activity levels—such as sleeping for 12 to 14 hours or frenzied activity lasting for hours
  • Unpleasant or painful symptoms when Darvocet is withdrawn
  • Preoccupation with running out Darvocet
