Di-Antalvic was a combination medication that contained two active ingredients: dextropropoxyphene and paracetamol (also known as acetaminophen). Dextropropoxyphene is an opioid pain reliever, while paracetamol is a non-opioid analgesic and fever reducer.

However, I must inform you that Di-Antalvic has been withdrawn from the market in many countries, including France, due to safety concerns associated with the use of dextropropoxyphene. The risks of dextropropoxyphene, such as potential for addiction, overdose, and serious heart rhythm abnormalities, outweighed its benefits, leading to its discontinuation.

If you have any concerns about pain management or need information about alternative medications, I recommend speaking with a healthcare professional who can provide you with the most up-to-date and appropriate recommendations based on your individual needs.
