I took Darvocet and heard that it has been recalled. What should I do or look for?
As you know, Darvocet or Darvon was used as a prescription pain reliever; however, it was recalled because of patients having heart issues. The pain medication propoxyphene, which is found in Darvocet and Darvon, was the cause of concern, as there is evidence that the drug changes the electrical activity of the heart. Some of the problems people have complained of include irregular heartbeats, rhythm abnormalities, and cardiac arrest.
If you have experienced a heart attack in Iowa due to defective drugs, or have had irregular heartbeats, rhythm abnormalities, or required the use of a pacemaker while taking Darvocet, you may be entitled to seek compensation.
You should contact an Iowa product liability attorney if you have suffered from any of these side effects while you were taking this drug.
