Propoxyphene is a relatively weak opioid pain medication. It is typically combined with acetaminophen in the form of Darvocet. Being an opioid, propoxyphene can cause side effects including lightheadedness and sedation.

Flexeril is a muscle relaxer that also very commonly causes sedation. There is controversy as to whether these medications do anything but make you sleep.

Because of the potential additive effects of these medications, sedation will most likely occur. Taken in normal doses, the sedation should only make you sleepy. You should not perform any activity which requires that you be alert, including driving.

If you take higher than normal doses, you may experience excessive sedation. Especially if mixed with alcohol, respiratory depression may occur.
