They site 2110 deaths of people using these medications from 1981 through 1999. I have never used this medication but I thought I'd seen some here say they have and I did have an email friend who used Darvocet. SO, just thought it might be of interest to some. I got the newsin a newsletter from the About.com Arthritis people. It is an information only site and covers all forms of Arthritis including FM and I think they also talk about CFS also.
