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?
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.
