Darvon and Darvocet Litigation
Farrar & Ball represents numerous patients who have suffered serious side effects from the recalled pain killers Darvocet and Darvon, the brand names of the drug propoxyphene.
The popular pain killers, manufactured by Xanodyne Pharmaceuticals Inc., were recalled in 2010 after the FDA reviewed clinical data showing that the drug puts individuals at risk of possibly extreme or even fatal heart issues. Moreover, these pain killers were recalled years earlier in the United Kingdom and Europe.
Patients taking Darvocet or Darvon have experienced various side effects, including cardiac depression, interruption of heart transmission of electrical impulses, slowed heartbeats, and a decreased ability of the heart to contract properly.
Propoxyphene has been associated with more than 2,000 reported deaths in the United States since 1981.
