Darvocet is an analgesic medication designed to aid in the reduction of pain from arthritis and other conditions. Drugs in this class relieve pain by affecting the way the brain perceives or senses it.
The safety of this drug has been questioned for years. It was banned in the UK in 2005, in part because of the possibility of overdose.
In 2006, a U.S. consumer group asked the FDA to ban Darvocet and its generic derivatives. This request was based on research that found the ingredients in the drug were not very effective, were toxic at doses not much higher than the recommended amount and were addictive. The drug was also attributed to thousands of U.S. deaths, largely caused by cardiac toxicity.
The drug was not formally banned by the FDA until November 19, 2010.
