In three cases of suicidal poisoning by co-proxamol blood samples were obtained. Site dependent differences in blood proxyphene concentrations were consistently lowest in peripheral blood and highest in central sites. There was a less than twofold variation in corresponding blood paracetamol concentrations. Reference data on fatal propoxyphene concentrations do not specify the blood sampling site and can be misleading.
