Darvon Storage

Darvon capsules should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children. Because it can be a desirable drug of abuse, make sure to keep it in a safe place.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

This medication is often prescribed "as needed," which means that you do not need to take a dose if you do not feel pain. If you forget to take a dose of Darvon and notice significant pain, take your missed dose right away. However, make sure to wait the recommended time before taking the next dose.

Available Strengths

Darvon capsules are available in one strength -- Darvon 65-mg capsules. At one point, a 32-mg capsule was available; however, this particular strength is no longer available.

Can I Buy Generic Darvon?

This medication is available in generic form (see Generic Darvon).
