Generic Darvocet

Who Makes Generic Darvocet?

Can I Get "Real" Darvocet or Pink Darvocet?

Many (if not most) pharmacies do not carry brand-name Darvocet. Generic Darvocet is significantly less expensive, and many insurance companies require people to use the generic products. If you are willing to pay full price, as your insurance will probably not cover brand-name Darvocet, your pharmacy may be willing to stock brand-name Darvocet for you.
However, many healthcare providers view requests for brand-name narcotics as a sign of abuse or diversion (selling the drugs to someone else) because brand-name drugs of abuse usually have a higher street value than their generic versions. In many situations, a request for a brand-name drug of abuse instead of a generic may arouse your healthcare provider's suspicions.
Additionally, some of the generic forms of Darvocet come in bright, almost florescent pink tablets. These tablets are well-known to abusers of Darvocet, and it appears that the pink tablets may have a higher "street value," compared to the white tablets, simply due to their characteristic color. There should be no difference in effectiveness between the two. If you specifically request the pink tablets, it is likely that your pharmacist will be very suspicious of your request. It should be noted that brand-name Darvocet tablets are not pink; they are a very dark orange (almost red) color.
