What is the recommended dosage of Darvocet?

Darvocet dosage is determined by the fact that Darvocet is a compound medication that consists of two chemical substances: propoxyphene and acetaminophen.

Propoxyphene may be habit-forming and overdose of acetaminophene can be dangerous to the liver.

The maximum dose of acetaminophen for adults is 1000 mg per dose and 4000 mg per day. One Darvocet tablet may contain up to 650 mg of acetaminophen, depending on the formulation.

To relieve pain in adults, Darvocet normal oral dosage is 1 or 2 tablets, depending on the strength, every four hours as needed.

In children, Darvocet dosage must be determined by the doctor.

If you take Darvocet according to a regular schedule and you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not double doses.

Do not stop taking Darvocet suddenly without first talking to your doctor if you have been taking it continuously for more than 5 to 7 days. Your doctor may want to gradually reduce your Darvocet dosage.

Other medications can contain acetaminophen, too. So, you must control the amount of acetaminophen taken altogether, in order not to exceed your dosage if you are taking Darvocet in complex with other medications.
