Dextropropoxyphene (or DXP) was a synthetic analgesic. It was found in combination with other analgesics
such as paracetamol, in medications like the well-known Di-Antalvic® and, to a lesser extent, Propofan®. It was prescribed for adults to fight pain
, both moderate and intense. However, following studies that revealed the serious cardiac risks that dextropropoxyphene engendered, medications containing it were gradually withdrawn starting in 2011.
