Talking With Your Healthcare Provider
While it is not recommended to drink alcohol while taking Darvon-N, you should not stop taking this medication or stop drinking alcohol abruptly. Alcohol withdrawal can lead to life-threatening complications. Also, stopping Darvon-N abruptly can lead to withdrawal symptoms (see Darvon-N Withdrawal), although these problems are not usually life-threatening.
If you take Darvon-N and have an alcohol problem, please seek help, as this is a complicated situation that requires the skills and knowledge of a qualified healthcare provider.
In addition, you should not be afraid to discuss your alcohol consumption with your healthcare provider. Together, the two of you can make a shared decision about Darvon-N and alcohol for your particular situation. If you do drink, your healthcare provider can also suggest ways to help you stop.
