How long does Darvocet stay in your system?

I am on darvocet and need to know how long it will last.


Answer by  sgriffrd (45)

The drug typically is dosed at intervals of 4-6 hours. The drug is used for moderate pain. Studies show that the effects usually decline in the blood stream between 6 -12 hours. The individual should follow instructions from the pharmacy. Call your doctor if you are not having adequate pain relief.

Darvocet is usually gone from your system between 3 to 7 days of taking the medication. Drinking large amounts of water can help reduce the time its in your system.

Darvon (propoxyphene), the active ingredient in Darvocet, is normally completely gone from your system within 3-7 days of taking it. However, about one-quarter of it is changed in the liver to norpropoxyphene, which is also causes analgesia. It also is detectable on most drug tests as well done.

Usually the Darvocet will stay in your system for around 24 to 48 hours before it is gone out of your system. That is a drug that is addictive so usually it depends on how much you take also on how long it will take to get out of your system.
