Propoxophene

Were you looking for information about Propoxyphene? Propoxophene is a common misspelling of propoxyphene.
 
If you have mild-to-moderate pain, you may benefit from propoxyphene (Darvon®, Darvon-N®). This pain reliever is available by prescription only and comes in the form of capsules and tablets that are taken every four hours as needed. Most people tolerate it well, but potential side effects of the drug include nausea, dizziness, and drowsiness. This pain reliever is particularly dangerous in the case of an overdose, so it is important to not take more than 6 capsules or tablets in a 24-hour period.
