Publisher’s Note: The following release from US Drug Watchdog adds to a growing body of evidence that calls into question the intent of the pharmaceutical industry as it attempts to persuade policy-makers that it should have a major policy-making role in oversight of determination of the safety of safe, affordable prescription medicines from licensed, registered pharmacies in Tier One countries. To elevate an industry that is—or should be—subject to the strictest governmental oversight to a prominent role to help determine the processes of the agency—in this instance, the FDA—that is charged with providing oversight of that industry’s manufacturing processes is completely irrational, particularly when that industry (Pharma) has a proven record of manufacturing processes that expose Americans to potential harm to their health as well as proven fraud. The release follows:
The US Drug Watchdog is calling the recalled pain pills Darvocet, Darvon, or the generic propoxyphene some of the most lethal drugs ever sold in the United States, and is urging all US citizens to stop taking Darvocet, Darvon, or the generic version propoxyphene pain pills immediately.
“We are astonished with how many people we have talked with, who took Darvocet, or Darvon, had a heart attack, developed severe heart rhythm issues, and now are either medicated to control their heart beat, or they have a pacemaker. This should be on the national news every day," the group says.
The US FDA ordered a recall of these drugs on November 10th 2010, yet there is a worry that most consumers have not yet heard of the recall.
US Drug Watchdog says, "22 million US citizens have used the recalled pain pills Darvocet, Darvon. These recalled pain pills can cause severe heart problems including, heart attacks, sudden deaths, or severe heart damage.
“We need to hear from every Darvocet, Darvon, or propoxyphene user, who has developed severe heart issues, or heart problems."

"We don't think-we know the recalled Darvocet, Darvon, or the generic version propoxyphene are still being used by millions of US citizens, these specific types of pain pills have been associated with heart rhythm issues, heart attacks, sudden death, and many users now have pacemakers, because of the damage done by these widely used medications," the group continues
"These pain pills have killed completely innocent US citizens, and our number one goal is to identify every individual in the United States, who has used the recalled Darvocet, or Darvon, and then developed heart rhythm issues, heart attacks, or other severe complications, including having to now have a heart pacemaker.
“We now fear it’s in the 10,000's.
"If you, or a loved one has suffered from abnormal heart rhythms, heart attacks, or other heart problems while taking Darvon, Darvocet, or the generic propoxyphene, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466."

What are some typical symptoms experienced by many Darvocet, or Darvon pain pill users?
The US Drug Watchdog indicates the serious side effects that they are aware of with respect to Darvocet, or Darvon users are as follows:
The US Drug Watchdog , the premier private pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States, concludes with the following alert:
"The Internet, and cable TV are loaded with advertisements, about compensation for Darvocet, or Darvon users, ads talking about Darvocet, or Darvon class actions, and or lawsuits, related to heart attacks, or heart rhythm problems.
“Unfortunately, the vast majority of the attorneys, or law firms advertising for help with heart conditions, heart attacks, or even sudden death after using the recalled Darvocet, or Darvon are middlemen marketing law firms-not the actual trial law firms, that will prosecute these cases.
"We want to make certain the Darvocet, or Darvon victims get to the actual trial law firms, or attorneys, that have the best record in achieving significant results for their clients-not a middleman marketing law firm." http://USDrugWatchdog.com
