Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Ethanol was shown to enhance the bioavailability of propoxyphene by 25% probably by reducing its first-pass metabolism.

Suicide accounted for 81.3% of cases while the other deaths were caused accidentally and involved drug addicts, alcoholics and those who had taken their dextropropoxyphene-containing prescriptions following consumption of alcohol.

The median postmortem blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was 3.3 (w/w) in the 615 alcohol poisonings, but significantly lower, ranging from 1.3 to 1.7, when promazine, doxepin, amitriptyline or propoxyphene were found together with alcohol.

BACKGROUND Dextropropoxyphene DXP ) toxicity is highly potentiated by alcohol and the aim of this study was to determine the characteristics of non-suicidal deceased with simultaneous occurrence of alcohol and DXP in the blood.
We propose strict regulations in prescription, or even a ban on prescription of DXP, and that physicians in the meantime pay extra attention … this risk category of patients and make sure that the patient is well informed of the life-threatening risks of simultaneous use of DXP and alcohol.

Nevertheless, because of the high toxicity of DXP , especially when combined with alcohol or other drugs, the increase in the DXP prevalence gives reason for concern, since the studied population represents a group of individuals who use large doses of therapeutic or illegal drugs.

The goals included a reduction in propoxyphene use with alcohol or other CNS depressants, reduced prescribing of refills, and cessation of prescribing for patients at risk of abuse and misuse (suicide).

A suggestion is made that a closer examination be undertaken of the involvement in road crashes of the more widely available narcotic drugs codeine and propoxyphene when they are taken together with alcohol.
Accident; analysis and prevention  •  1985  |  View Paper
It has been shown, for example, that in fatal poisonings involving dextropropoxyphene , amitriptyline, pentobarbitone or chlormethiazole, the presence of ethanol causes a decrease in the concentration of the drug at which a given proportion of fatalities
