Oxycodone, Fentanyl and Heroin are not the drugs to blame for the opioid-epidemic - Propoxyohene (Darvon and Darvocet) are to blame

Dear Sir

I herby send you a couple of tweets about the painkilling substance Dextro-Propoxyphene (Darvoon and Darvocet.) When talking about the opioid epidemic in the United States - it's common to blame on Oxycodone, Fentanyl - which are legal drugs - as well as the illegal Heroin.

It is forgotten that Propoxyphene (DXP) was on the US market for more than 40 years before, as our research shows. We have researched the DXP for more than 25 years, see our CV, and have written two doctoral dissertations http://bit.ly/2xSr3Ex

 How many fatalities do you think 244 828 000 prescriptions on Darvon/Darvocet caused in United States during 10 years? bit.ly/Qetgiu #opiatcrisis

523 000 persons in the world could have been poisoned to death due to the painkilling substance Dextro (Propoxyphene) (DXP) = (Darvon - Darvocet) during the years 1985–2011 #opioid bit.ly/1PAAMUg and #OpioidEpidemic

Could Darvon & Darvocet be the most fatal DRUGS ever??? read my tweet #opioidepidemic #opioids bit.ly/1rwExg6 @TheJusticeDept

Propoxyphene was to sale from 1957 - 2010 in US, and the drug is now banned i almost ell the world
