Does anyone know if it will hurt me if I take Fioricet (butalbital/apap/caffeine) within 24 hours of taking…
tylenol pm? I have checked and checked and none of the drug interaction checkers online are helping me answer this… so I’m hoping someone on here is a nurse or doctor or pharmacist and can answer this question. And also can someone tell me what exactly the fioricet will help with… they gave it to me when I had my spinal tap (about 7 months ago), but I have cramps super bad now and that is my reason for wanting to take it. Thank you so much.
thank you sooo much doober!!!
Fioricet is a non-opiate pain reliever. The butalbital synergizes with the apap (Tylenol is apap) and gives greater pain relief than either alone.
Tylenol pm has an antihistamine (probably Benadryl – diphenhydramine) that is pretty much gone after 6 hours. So is the apap. Taking the Fioricet will not hurt you if it’s been 24 hours. Taking them at the same time would not be recommended because you could get too much apap.
