Darvon-N tablets should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children. Because it can be a desirable drug of abuse, make sure to keep it in a safe place.
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?
This medication is often prescribed "as needed," which means that you do not need to take it if you do not feel pain. If you forget to take a dose of Darvon-N and notice significant pain, take your missed dose right away. However, make sure to wait the recommended time before taking it again.
Darvon-N tablets are available in one strength -- Darvon-N 100 mg tablets. Each tablet contains the same amount of propoxyphene as one 65-mg Darvon capsule.
