Widely Prescribed Pain Drugs

Pulled From Market -- Serious Side Effects

The FDA has asked the maker of Darvon and Darvocet -- pain medications on the market

since the 1950s and prescribed to millions of patients -- to stop selling the drugs

because they pose serious heart risks. The action includes generic versions, too.

Thanks, good to know. They make me sick so it won't affect me, but so many people take them. I did way back in the late 60's for awful headaches, and it didn't even work. Just made me weird. Well, weirder! LOL
