1. Product Introduction
Rapid Propoxyphene Test is an immunochromatography based one step in vitro test. It is designed for qualitative determination of nor-propoxyphene in human urine specimens.
Propoxyphene is in a group of drugs called narcotic pain relievers. Propoxyphene is an opioid that was used to relieve mild to moderate pain. PPX may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide. In general, the adverse effects of propoxyphene may be more likely and more severe in patients with renal and/or liver disease. General side effects including drug tolerance and influenza type illness have been reported. Physical symptoms can include slow heartbeat, dizziness, shallow breathing, confusion, convulsions, constipation, jaundice, and nausea. PPX in high dose and taken in combination with other drugs such as alcohol, sleeping aids, and antidepressants is associated with drug-related deaths. PPX is detectable in the urine for up to 10 days.
