Comment:
The main effect of this was almost hallucinogenic. I could not tolerate the odd thoughts and visual disturbances - but it provided almost no pain relief - which was prescribed post-op. Returned to surgeon and got a replacement within the week. Darvon is on my "never again" list.

Comment:
I took the medication for knee and hip pain and it has virtually no effect. I accidentally took two 650 pills and still it provided little pain reduction. I did have feelings of flushness and slight dizziness. Have not used it for any other type of pain.

I have been using this to control spinal pain (stenosis and spondelosis) fibro and found it helps more than even when I was taking Oxycontin which I stopped on my own and switched back to Propo-N 100-650

Comment:
I kept waiting for approval for Lyrica for fybermyalgia from my pharmacy company...finally, I took some Darvon I had on had for another "pain problem" every 5 hours and it made me forget how much pain I had been in! I don't like the side effects I just read on this site though!!!
