Drugs and Alcohol Addiction is a universal problem. There are several ways to overcome it.
Darvocet Addiction

Darvocet is a blend of acetaminophen (Tylenol) and propoxyphene and has structural relation with methadone. This drug belongs to the class of drugs called narcotic analgesics. It gives relief from mild to moderate pain by changing the way of feeling pain.



Two forms of Darvocet are available-Propoxyphene hydrochloride and propoxyphene napsylate. The former one is more slowly absorbed in the body and has a longer duration of action. Both the drugs are found in many pain relievers. Propoxyphene reduces the sensation of pain by binding to the pain receptors in the brain. Acetaminophen can arrest the production of prostaglandins, which also results in relief from pain. Moreover, it increases the effects of propoxyphene.

Darvocet can be addictive. In fact, its addictive quality is the most prominent effect of this drug. Following medical guidance is essential when taking Darvocet. Taking large doses of the drug, taking it frequently, or taking it for long time are to be avoided. Darvocet is available as tablets. When abused it is taken orally or chewed. Many addicts snort the powdered tablets or dissolve it in water to inject.

Effects of Darvocet

Abusers may develop physical and psychological dependence to the drug. In some patients, an allergic reaction may occur on continual use. Darvocet can increase the effects of oral anticoagulants, which may lead to bleeding. In combination with other sedatives or alcohol, this drug may cause dangerous sedation, possibly resulting in unconsciousness or death. Abuse of Darvocet may lead to yellowed eyes and skin, kidney and liver problems, and drowsiness and dizziness.

Symptoms of Darvocet Addiction

A bluish tinge to the skin is the most visible symptom of propoxyphene overdose. Extreme sleepiness, decreased heart functions, and in some cases a state of coma are other common symptoms. Abdominal pain, excessive sweating, and excessive perspiration are also seen among Darvocet abusers.

Treatment The selection of treatment program for recovery and rehabilitation from Darvocet depends on the severity of addiction and ranges from certified addiction counseling to treatment at a rehabilitation center.
