Generic Darvon

Can I Get "Real" Darvon?

Many (if not most) pharmacies do not carry brand-name Darvon. Generic Darvon is significantly less expensive, and many insurance companies require people to use the generic products. If you are willing to pay full price, your pharmacy may be willing to stock brand-name Darvon 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. However, if you have a legitimate need for the brand-name product (such as a true and documented allergy to an inactive ingredient in a generic product), do not hesitate to discuss this with your healthcare provider.
