    Drugmaker pulls Darvocet and Darvon from US market over heart risks

    Drugmaker Xanodyne Pharmaceuticals Inc. agreed Friday to pull two of its painkillers, Darvon and Darvocet, from the US market over heart risk concerns, the US Food and Drug Administration said.

    Similar withdrawals from the market of the drug also known as propoxyphene were recommended in Europe in 2009 and are already under way.

    "The FDA sought market withdrawal of propoxyphene after receiving new clinical data showing that the drug puts patients at risk of potentially serious or even fatal heart rhythm abnormalities," the agency said.

    Geshez it's about time? Darvon and the other have been around since the 1960's.

    Vicodin makes me feel like "well, I tried" when I take it for pain. It does work as a decent cough medicine though and I try to keep a few around for those times I get a stubborn, non-productive cough that keeps me up too many nights. I was a little surprised to find out that's one of its listed uses in the PDR.

    You'd think such simple thinking would matter.
