Please note, Schmidt & Clark, LLP is no longer accepting Darvocet claims.  If you feel that you may have a potential case, we urge you to locate another law firm adequately suited to handle your claim.

On 1/30/09 an advisory committee to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) recommended a ban on the popular pain medication, Darvocet (propoxyphene combined with acetaminophen) that has been used to treat pain for more than 50 years. According to government health and safety experts, Darvocet has been linked to addiction and other serious, life-threatening side effects.

The Health Research Group recently petitioned the U.S. Food & Drug Administration to ban Darvon (generic: propoxyphene) and Darvocet (generic: propoxyphene + acetaminophen ) due to the confirmed link between propoxyphene and over 10,000 confirmed deaths and 2,110 reported accidental deaths since the early 1980′s.

If you or a loved one have taken Darvocet or Darvon and suffered from any side effects including accidental overdose, intentional overdose, suicide or any form of cardiac emergency, you should contact us immediately. You may be entitled to compensation and we can help.

What’s the problem?

Propoxyphene has been associated with 2,110 reported accidental deaths in the United States since 1981. A large proportion of these deaths occur because most of the drug is converted into a metabolite that is highly toxic to the heart and lasts longer in the body than the original compound, resulting in cardiac depression. Adverse cardiac events associated with propoxyphene include an interruption of heart transmission of electrical impulses, slowed heartbeats and a decreased ability of the heart to contract properly.
