Detox For Narcotic Pain Relievers

Darvon Detox TreatmentIn 2010, the United States Food and Drug Administration removed Darvon, and all medications that contained propoxyphene, from the market. The FDA determined that propoxyphene was related to a large number of deaths and the damage far outweighed the benefits. Thousands of people each year turn to Darvon Detox Treatment to solve their problems with Narcotics. While detox can help with the withdrawal phase, it will not rid someone of a Darvon habit.

What is Darvon?

Darvon or propoxyphene is a narcotic (opiate) pain reliever. Besides being used as a mild pain killer, Darvon has also been used as an anesthetic, and to treat a neurological condition known as restless leg syndrome. Darvon has been used to treat withdrawal symptoms from opiate dependency; however Darvon has no qualities to lessen psychological dependency. Further, individuals who use Darvon are at a risk for dependency.

Signs and Symptoms of Darvon Use

Darvon has the capacity to restrict breathing and reduce lung capacity in individuals with respiratory problems. Impaired judgment and function is another side effect and can hinder the ability to operate machinery. Darvon dependency is known to have significant psychological and physical effects. Taking Darvon in large doses may result in overdose and can be fatal. Alcohol and other medications including allergy medicines, when combined with Darvon, may increase the sedation effect and can cause coma and even death as it decreases breathing, reduces brain function and may affect the central nervous system.

Side effects from Darvon use include nausea and vomiting, constipation, dizziness and drowsiness, headache, agitation and confusion, severe abdominal pain, loss of consciousness, irregular heartbeat and seizures.

Medical Detox from Darvon Use

Medical Darvon Detox Treatment is strongly encouraged for withdrawal from Darvon use. Withdrawal symptoms may include insomnia and restlessness, agitation and anxiety, sweating and tremors and hallucinations. Darvon withdrawal can be painful and uncomfortable.

Medical detox from Darvon may be through outpatient or inpatient detox and via a clinic, doctor's office, hospital or private center. Outpatient medical detox through a clinic or doctor's office allows the individual to receive medication that they can take and detox at home.

Inpatient medical detox allows a place for individuals to detox and to get away from the stress of life while they get better. However there are some differences between the two. For example, hospital detox is a more traditional approach. They place their patients in psychiatric units, restrict outside contact and the medication that is used has been seen as ineffective at controlling withdrawal symptoms.

IV therapy medical detox is regarded by many physicians as the best method for detoxification from Darvon use. IV therapy is both safe and effective in removing the toxins from the system that built up as a result of the use of Darvon and because it uses intravenous therapy to administer medication for detox, the patient's withdrawal symptoms are controlled and the patient remains comfortable.

After your detox from Darvon is complete, you are encouraged to enroll in a program that will help with your continued success to have a life without drugs.
