Hello,

Greetings,

Sorry for your pain. Darvocet does not contain codeine but propoxyphene which belongs to the narcotic group of pain relievers. Though scorpion bite is usually harmless in most cases but it can need more intensive treatment. Sometimes severe allergic reaction can occur. Morphine can be required to relieve the pain. I would recommend that you should go to ER when 2 advils have not helped with pain. Sometimes antiserum is used too.

Hope this information will help you.
Wish your healthy life.
Any query, please feel free to ask.
It will be my privilege to assist you.
Regards.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
