Dextropropoxyphene is an analgesic in the opioid category structurally related to methadone. It is used to treat mild to moderate pain and as an antitussive. It can be used to ease pain before, during and after an operation. It is often combined with acetaminophen in the preparation co-proxamol (Darvocet in the US and Capadex in AUS). It is an optical isomer of Levopropoxyphene. The racemic mixture is called Propoxyphene. Propoxyphene is now banned in many countries due to cardiac side effects, and has been removed from the US market since 2010.
