Is darvon 65 manufactured anymore?
I have cronic pain and I have been going to Los Algodones Mexico for a year now to pick up Darvon-65 pain medication. As of January of this year they do not have it. Mexico does not know when they get it in. I thought Darvon was manufactured by Lilly & Co. I called Lilly and they claim they don't manufacture Darvon 65 anymore. They referred me to another company and they stated they don't manufacturer to Mexico.
Can anyone help me and let me know where Darvon 65 is available and where I can find it. I have researched this for many months and I am so frustrated!!!!
PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

The pure dextropropoxephene(Darvon) without acetaminophen was withdrawn from tht UK in 2004. In Austrailia it is still available as well as the US but from 30mg dextropropoxephene/ 600mg tylenol to 60mg/325mg- not 65. And it is rarely prescribed without the acetaminophen (tylenol) The mixture of the two is usually called Darvocet The pure dextropropoxephene (Darvon) is not available in the US in 65mg but it is still available.

hope this is helpful

I don't know the answer, but I understand your distress. I love those cute little pink "pulvules." I've always gotten a fine high and pretty good pain relief off pure propoxyphene hydrochrloride. There should be some generic manufacturers out there somewhere. If not, I'll be sad.

is it me, or does darvocet make you quezy too?

I love the hydrochloride versions -- darvon 65 and darvon compound 65. Nice memories attached to both of those.

I have never bought an rx from mexico or been to any of the pharmacies. I am a neuropsychologist and a PA so I prescribe meds. There are people in the forum who have bought online for pain or to help detox but really everyone in here is trying to get off of the meds and/ or trying to stay clean, or just at a prescribed dose and not abuse meds. I know people who get drugs from mexico but I do not know of anyone in here that does. I think there is only 2 other people in this forum that are even in california.

Could you possible give me some of the generic brands of Darvon that I could pick up in Mexico or something similair. I have tried their Neo-Percocet and it is junk, it does nothing to help with the pain. I also use these to get high once in a while. They are a great product. Please advise.
Thanks

Those compounds are much smoother than the darvocet. The darvocet has an opioid with a much more different chemical structure than other opioids but it is similar to strength to codeine (weak opiates). The first couple of times I took dravon and darvocet I was terribly nauseous! I never though an opiate could make me throw up, I know nausea is a common side effect but I've never had it with any other opiate.
Most of this discontinuation of darvon 65 is all money and politics. Huge uprising in ' 78 and then again with the controversy in the UK, austrailia, and europe in '04 GEEEZZZZ! There are plenty of generic brands with just the dextropropoxephene just not in the 65mg b/c Eli Lily was the only pharmaceutical co. that produced the 65mg.

Neo-Percocet? Yikes, an opiate I haven't tried? Gotta look that one up. if it doesn't help with pain, damn sure there's no oxy in it ...

I have taken darvon 65 since i was in high school for menstral cramps and that was in the 60's. Nothing helps me with pain better than this does. It is now subscribed to me for migrane headaches and works better than hard narcotics. Get excited. It is the exact same thing as propoxyphene. You can get darvon 65 D it is just a stronger dose and it cost more because it is not generic. This is how the drug companies get you. Hope this helps.
