Drugs Home > What Is Propoxyphene Hydrochloride Used For?
Propoxyphene hydrochloride is approved for treating mild to moderate pain in adults. This prescription medication can be used for treating short-term pain (such as after a surgery) or for long-term pain control. Because of its dangerous overdose potential, this drug is not often a "first choice" pain medicine. There are currently no off-label uses of propoxyphene hydrochloride.
