Darvon® (propoxyphene hydrochloride) is a prescription medication approved for treating mild to moderate pain. It works in the brain and spinal cord, rather than directly at the site of the pain. This pain reliever comes in capsule form and is taken by mouth, usually every four hours as needed. Common side effects include dizziness, drowsiness, and nausea.
