Propoxyphene napsylate is a drug that is used to treat mild-to-moderate pain. Common side effects of this prescription medication include drowsiness, dizziness, and nausea. Because it is not considered a "strong" pain reliever, and because it is particularly dangerous in case of an overdose, this may not be a healthcare provider's first choice in many situations.
