Darvocet Drug Rehab
What is Darvocet?
Darvocet and Darvon are brand names of the drug “dextropropoxyphene”. This drug is classified as an analgesic opioid and is typically prescribed for one of the following reasons:
- Cough suppressant (antitussive)
- Local anesthesia
- Mild pain
- Relieving restless leg syndrome (or RLS) symptoms
The drug, like codeine, is considered as being a weaker opioid. However, recreational use of Darvocet can lead to physical and psychological dependency and eventually addiction. Ironically, dextropropoxyphene is oftentimes prescribed to ease the withdrawal symptoms of individuals who have gotten addicted to opioids.
Darvocet Side Effects
The side effects experienced when taking Darvocet can range from being mild to severe. Recreational use of the drug can be extremely dangerous and require emergency medical treatment. Some of the documented allergenic reactions to Darvocet include:
- Breathing difficulties
- Facial, lip, throat, or tongue swelling
Medical attention and treatment should be pursued immediately if any of these reactions to the drug occur. The more common (and milder) side effects experienced are:
- Bone and muscle pain
- Dry mouth
- Extreme irritability
- Flu-like symptoms
- Muscle spasms
- Pupil constriction
- Upset stomach
Additionally, Darvocet can result in a number of other side effects that are considered to be severe, such as:
- Cardiac arrest
- Circulatory collapse
- Clammy skin
- Severe respiratory depression
Taking Darvocet cautiously is always recommended but recreational use of this drug should be avoided at all costs. Most of the addiction treatment and recovery centers in the US offer treatment programs for addiction to Darvocet and other painkillers. Unfortunately, many of these are patterned after the more traditional facilities, and do not have impressive success rates. These programs do not treat the core issues that cause addiction.
