the FDA has taken Darvocet off the market. The docs I work for cant give this pain medication out any more and are prescribing a lot more topical creams instead. FDA approved many meds that were later taken off the market because of "problems" with the meds. I guess if the drug manufacturers fill out the proper paperwork they can get any med approved. It's only when people start have bad reactions (like dying) that the FDA removes the drugs from the market. Dont you just love the drug commercials on TV...so many side effects and some are worse than the actual disease.
Talk to ya later!
