I was sad that my former favorite pain drug Darvocet is apparently no longer on the market. it works quite well for the pain & I don't feel out of it or tired.

I've been taking this for about 15 years as I have issues with eating when it food reaches a certain point of my colon I just double over. without it I would not eat healthy.
