Dextropropoxyphene - Definition


Definition


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that revealed the serious cardiac risks that dextropropoxyphene engendered, medications containing it were gradually withdrawn starting in 2011.
