Syracuse Darvocet Darvon Recall Lawyers Report FDA Warning Of Propoxyphene Heart Damage Risk

“Darvocet and Darvon have been recalled,” said Michael A. Bottar, a Syracuse Darvocet recall lawyer with Bottar Law, PLLC, a team of upstate New York product liability attorneys investigating Darvocet and Darvon recall lawsuits.

On November 19, 2010, Xanodyne Pharmaceuticals, Inc., voluntarily recalled Darvocet and Darvon from the U.S. market. “The Food & Drug Administration believes that Darvocet and Darvon, which are brand names for propoxyphene ‘can cause problems with the heart.'” Potential cardiac-related side effects may include hypotension, reduced cardiac output, interruption of electrical impulses and a slowed heart beat. A representative from the FDA recommended that patients taking propoxyphene consult with their physicians and “not use it any longer.” A video released by the FDA can be found here.

The trial lawyers at Bottar Law, PLLC, have decades of experience investigating, prosecuting and trying to verdict dangerous pharmaceutical and unsafe drug cases. If you or a loved one have been injured due to a prescription medication, you and your family may be entitled to compensation for lifelong health care, medical expenses, special education, medical bills, loss of income, and pain and suffering.
