Can Children Use It?Darvon is not approved for children or adolescents, as it has not been adequately studied in this age group. This medication would be an unusual choice for a child or adolescent, as much more appropriate pain medications are available for these age groups.
Off-Label Uses for DarvonOn occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Darvon for something other than pain relief (this would be known as an "off-label" use). At this time, there are no universally accepted off-label uses for Darvon.
Due to the risks associated with Darvon (such as the especially high risk of serious problems in the case of an overdose), there are almost always more appropriate medications that could be used instead of prescribing Darvon off-label.
