As a pharmacist, I agree with Bram. Darvon (propoxphene) by itelsf is rarely used. In fact, most drug wholesales (including mine) don't stock it because its such a poor analgesic. The more commone drug is Darvocet - propoxyphene with acetaminophen - there goes your abilbity to mask a fever. But, the dose of acetaminophen is so low that if the fever were a real issue, it would be notable.I agree a bone marrow unit should be using straight narcotics which are easily titratable & convertable when the pt needs discharge or conversion to oral therapy.The drug has been a "dog" for years & is overdue for removal from the marketplace due to its poor analgesia, overdose profile & propensity for addiction.
