Darvon, one of a number of product names for Dextropropoxyphene, is a drug formerly on the U.S. market, but banned since 2010. The product, in the opioid class, was first patented and manufactured by Eli Lilly & Company in 1955, and was typically prescribed for the treatment of mild pain, as well as a cough suppressant. Because it has been associated with serious heart arrhythmias in a number of users, the FDA first recommended a black box warning, in 2009, advising of potential health risks.
In addition to concerns about irregular heart rhythms, the FDA has stated that Darvon may be tied to nausea, drowsiness or impaired attention span, sore throat, constipation, confusion and itching.
