Drug Recall Has Widespread Impact

FDA withdraws approval of pain medications after study shows related heart problems

Columbia, SC – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced it had withdrawn approval of any medications containing propoxyphene after a recent study showed they caused irregular heart rhythms. These prescription pain relief medications are sold under the brand names Darvon and Darvocet; multiple generic versions have also been withdrawn from the market.

“We are concerned that not everyone has heard about the recall of these dangerous drugs,” says Columbia attorney Carl L. Solomon. “From what the FDA has indicated, even those who have taken the drugs for many years could begin having medical issues at any time. Anyone who has been using this prescription medication should contact their doctor as soon as possible to discuss alternative pain medications.”  For more detailed information, readers should visit the FDA’s website (www.fda.gov).
