Darvocet, a Narcotic Pain Reliever Banned by the FDA

April 20th, 2011

Sometimes migraine pain can make sufferers desperate for relief and prescriptions for narcotic pain relievers like Darvocet were written.

Hopefully, those of you who suffer with chronic migraines are taking steps to prevent their migraines with proven, natural products like MigreLief, rather than continually trying to relieve the often debilitating pain.

But when a painful migraine does occur, and the triptan drugs like Imitrex or Zomig are not working for you, you may require a prescription pain medication.

Recent reports from the FDA indicate that taking Darvocet can cause life threatening heart arrhythmias (a disturbance in the electrical activity of the heart) and Darvocet has been taken off the market.

It is very important to speak with your physician about gradually stopping the use of Darvocet if you are currently taking it.   Abrupt withdrawal from the drug can cause serious side-effects.
