 Fioricet for migraine? | Migraine Advisor

 

Fioricet for migraine?

This drug has Acetaminophen, Caffiene, and Butalbital. Acetaminophen is for headache pain, caffiene is to increase the effects of acetaminophen, butalbital is a sedative. This is normally prescribed for tension headaches, but it has been prescribed to me for migraines. I have read a little about treating migraine with fioricet, has anyone used fioricet for migraine and did it help? Can you offer any other information on fioricet?

Chosen Answer:

I am also on fioricet for my migraines, Been on it for about 4 years, I did try imitrix, and all kinds like it but I ended up in the e.r. for the pain was unbearable, My Neurologist suggested butal/apap/caf50-325-40mg and then promethazine for the nausea, the combination works so good for me. I have not been to an e.r. for my migraines since being on them. The only side effect my Dr. told me about was taking the butal/apap/caf pills too often will actually make you have reoccurring migraines, but I do not abuse mine and get a migraine about once a week or every 2 weeks so it does work very well.

    l have, there was a time in my life that my migraines were so bad every day that my Dr. finally put me on it. lt works really well, but after about a year of using it every day, l decided l needed to stop. that was hard but the headaches had decreased in severity and weren’t every day, so now l just take generic Excedrin when l have a headache, yes the migraines stopped. Good luck with it.

    There is no medicine for H/A OR MIGRAINE. Not only these but for almost all painful diseases. Hence they become chronic.
    Acidity, WORRY, excessive wind, cold , heat, sour food and sinusitis, constipation, intestinal inflammation;
    Blockage in the flow of Vital Energy are their causes. None of them can be treated with medicine. Our 100% success in treating migraine &H/A confirms it.
    Acupuncture is the best treatment. I can treat it with naturopathy and YOG, but how can you manage pl see.

    Avoid late sleeping if possible;spicy, sour, stale bakery foods and alcohole.
    Sweet foods, COCOANUT WATER,sweet fruits, milk, rice, SPROUTS, SALADS and good sleep will help you.
    But you try one herbal remedy- two drops of drumstick leaves’ juice in opposite nostril if one side pains and both nostrils if full H/A will give you rescue. Betel leaf helps but it isvery strong.
    If it is acute pl search a painful point 3-6 mm behind your thumb nail and press it, H/A will disappear within 30 seconds.
