Hey Everyone,

I has just come to my attention that there is a class action for the pain killer Darvon, if you have ever taken it and it was widely prescribed in Vietnam for pain relief and you have had Heart attacks, or have severe cardiac problems you may be a class member. I heard about this a few days ago then remembered my husbands service medical records are riddled with Darvon prescriptions to cope with pain, migraines,back pain etc.

So check you medical records and look it up online: Darvon class action.

Jst thought I would give a heads up.

It is not just Heart attacks, It also includes Arrythmas, and other stuff with the heart.

Personally, I would stay away from any class action as the claimants get little money but the attorneys get paid big sums.

Medical evidence is necessary to determine when you had started taking the drug and when you suffred your first Heart issue.

Anyhow, Mine has been sent off for several weeks.

Darvon was widely used in the U.S. during the 60's and 70's so it's not surprising that it was the VA's drug of choice. It was prescribed for me during AIT at Fort Polk.

Thanks for the heads up on the class action hawkfire27.

The VA was one of the first ones to quit using it as it was taken off the formulary several years ago. I got mine through a Private Doc.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
