dextropropoxyphene

A painkilling drug similar to METHADONE. It is also dispensed in combination with paracetamol, as Distalgesic. Overdosage is one of the commonest causes of death by poisoning, as absorption is rapid and breathing is quickly paralysed. It is not much more effective than CODEINE and some poisoning experts think it should be withdrawn. A brand name is Doloxene.
