Propo-n/apap is a mild painkiller that is gentler on the stomach than codeine, and people with allergies to codeine and morphine can take it. Because it is mild many people believe, quite wrongly, that there are no dangers with this drug. In fact, it is quite toxic and it can take as few as six for a fatal overdose to occur. One of the ingredients, propoxyphene, has played a part in the deaths of 10,000 people since the 1950s, and of the deaths associated with it between 1981 and 1999, 38.6 per cent of them were accidental. There is no effective antidote to propoxyphene so care must be taken at all times when using Propo-n/apap.

The other ingredient of Propo-n/apap, acetaminophen, is safe in recommended doses, but high doses can cause liver damage.

High dosages of propoxyphene are very dangerous and can cause seizures and even comas. It can also slow down breathing to dangerous levels and all these risks are exacerbated if it is taken alongside alcohol, potentially making it an even more lethal drug. During overdose, propoxyphene is metabolized, which means it is broken down, and becomes harmful to the heart.

The maximum dosage for propoxyphene is absolutely no more than one tablet every four to six hours. If you do, you are taking risks that could have very serious consequences.

It is worth noting that in 2004, propoxythene was the 12th highest-selling drug in the United States but in 2005 it was banned in the UK, and it is hardly ever used in Canada. There have been many activists in the US who are working towards getting it banned altogether.

It acts as a slow but steady pain reliever for my joint pain. After 45 minutes I forget that I was in pain. I do have to be aware that my motor skills have decrease some what and should not drive or use sharp knives for a while. I am in the Food Industry and do handle sharp items in the course of my daily routine.

Propo-n/apap is one of the best-known drugs which are used to treat fibro pain. It must, however, be kept in mind that you should not take a Propo-n/apap tablet on your own without consulting your family physician. If you are diagnosed with fibro pain, your family physician might prescribe drugs such as Elavil, which induces sleep, and either Vicodan or Propo-n/apap tablets to reduce the pain.

Some of these medicines that are used to ease pain can also have a negative side effect (that is, it can have a rebound effect) which could make matters worse for a person who is suffering from fibro pain. However, this does not always happen and the use of these drugs can actually prove to be beneficial for some people. It is, however, advisable to educate yourself by consulting your doctor about the drug and its effects, particularly if you plan to take it over a long period of time.
