Is Butalbital fioricet A Narcodic?

Chosen Answer:

Used for migraine headaches it is not technically a narcotic because it doesn’t have an opiate ingredient. It is considered a barbiturate. The mix in butalbital is mostly acetaminophen and caffeine, sometimes *codeine depending on type.

If you are concerned about the way it will make you feel when you take it, that can be best described as relaxed.
The caffine in this pill is to enhance pain relief and the acetaminophen and*codeine for the pain and to calm, which is necessary with a migraine!!!!!

Hope this helps!!

    it depends somewhat of your definition of a narcotic. to be precise, narcotics are derivatives of opium. that is, morphine, Demerol, codeine & the like. butalbitol is a barbituate, not an opium derivative. however, since all barbituates are addicting if taken for long periods & in large doses, many people lump them in with the “narcotics.”

    It is technically a Barbiturate. But some come with codeine. A Narcotic in the real definition is an opiate. A pain reliever. NOT marijuana, cocaine or meths amphetamine like law enforcement refers all these drugs to be.

    Fioricet is great for migraine headaches.
