Darvocet Drug Interactions

If Darvocet is combined with certain medications, drug interactions could occur. Some of the medicines that may lead to drug interactions with Darvocet include warfarin, carbamazepine, monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), and other acetaminophen products. In order to help minimize the risk of negative drug interactions, you should tell your healthcare provider about all other medications you are taking before using the pain reliever.

Darvocet Interactions: An Overview

In November 2010, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) withdrew all medications that contain propoxyphene from the market. It has been determined that the risks of propoxyphene outweigh the possible benefits.

Pharmacies will no longer sell this medication, and people who take it should stop and ask their healthcare provider for a more suitable pain medication.
