No, it's a non-steroidal anti inflammatory (NSAID) drug that is similar to, but not exactly like, ibuprofen. It has NO opiate or narcotic in it.

There are combination medications that combine NSAIDs with opiates, (e.g., percodan is oxycodone + aspirin, and Vicodin is hyrodcodone + acetiminophen). These combinations are prescription only.

Can you take Darvocet with Voltaren?

Yes, you can. Darvocet is the synthetic narcotic pain reliever propoxyphene combined with acetaminophen (paracetamol). Voltaren is an NSAID (non-steroidal-anti-inflammatory). Neither medication should interact with the other. There are others preparation called Darvon Compound or Darvon Compound 65 which have propoxyphene with aspirin and caffeine. These SHOULD NOT be combined with Voltaren, because aspirin is also an non-steroidal-anti-inflammatory. Taking too many NSAIDs, either of the same medication or by combining multiple types of NSAID, can cause issues such as ulcers and bleeding problems.
