Darvon Drug Description
DARVON®
(propoxyphene hydrochloride) Capsules, USP Pulvules®

WARNINGS

There have been numerous cases of accidental and intentional overdose
with propoxyphene products either alone or in combination with other CNS depressants,
including alcohol. Fatalities within the first hour of overdosage are not
uncommon. Many of the propoxyphene-related deaths have occurred in patients
with previous histories of emotional disturbances or suicidal ideation/attempts
and/or concomitant administration of sedatives, tranquilizers, muscle relaxants,
antidepressants, or other CNS-depressant drugs. Do not prescribe propoxyphene
for patients who are suicidal or have a history of suicidal ideation.
The metabolism of propoxyphene may be altered by strong CYP3A4 inhibitors
(such as ritonavir, ketoconazole, itraconazole, troleandomycin, clarithromycin,
nelfinavir, nefazadone, amiodarone, amprenavir, aprepitant, diltiazem, erythromycin,
fluconazole, fosamprenavir, grapefruit juice, and verapamil) leading to
enhanced propoxyphene plasma levels. Patients receiving propoxyphene and
any CYP3A4 inhibitor should be carefully monitored for an extended period
of time and dosage adjustments should be made if warranted (see CLINICAL
PHARMACOLOGY - Drug Interactions and WARNINGS,
PRECAUTIONS and DOSAGE
AND ADMINISTRATION for further information).
