The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has pulled the popular painkiller Darvocet from the U.S. market.
The FDA has confirmed that they are taking it off the market after new research has shown that the painkillers pose some serious side effects.
The ingredient that is causing these side effects is propoxyphene. It can cause major health issues including heart rhythm problems that could prove to be fatal if the body reacts in a very negative way to it.
If you are currently prescribed to this medicine, please stop taking it.
