There has been a Darvon recall that began in 2009.  Darvon was eventually pulled from the U.S. market in November 2010.  The Darvon recall was done voluntarily by Xanodyne after a lawsuit was brought by Public Citizen.

FDA Darvon Study

Darvon, a narcotic pain killer, was prescribed to over 22 million people.  The FDA, after urging from Public Citizen, conducted a study on the effects of Darvon, Darvocet, and Darvocet N-100.  The study showed that taking Darvon can cause serious toxicity of the heart.  However, the original study was designed to study the link between Darvon and an increase in bladder cancer.  It is estimated that 5% of all drug related deaths between 1987 and 2006 was caused by Darvocet.  This is on the heels of Darvocet becoming one of the top 25 prescribed medications.

Current Darvon Lawsuits

At the time Darvon and Darvocet was pulled from the market in November 2010, it is estimated that roughly 10million people were taking some form of Darvon or Darvocet.  However, those that took Darvon and Darvocet and suffered a serious side effect may be able to file a lawsuit against the makers of Darvon (Xanodyne).   If you have been injured after taking Darvon or Darvocet you should contact an experienced product liability attorney.  An experienced Darvon attorney can help gather the necessary medical information, evidence, and help you navigate the complicated court system.
