hey I am posting this for all i have read the threads
My sister in-law is in the hospital IC she had migrains and took fiorcet from her pri care he must have stopped it so we just found out she was buying on line from all these companys some are calling he cell phone harssing her husband as she is lying there in a psycosis and has lost over 30 lbs and is detoxing from these pills now they may or may not be the real drugs we may never know but know this they are addicting and could get any one so think twice and dont buy online no doctor checks on you and they just push drugs online just google fiorcet and you can get any pain pill or anything you want I cant understand how this is possible
Fioricet is on the DEA's Narcotics Drug Scheduling list - it is Schedule III - which means it is a Controlled Substance...these kinds of medications are usually addictive. I take it without the Codeine and take usually 2 a day, almost every day and do not get rebound headaches. I also take it with 15mg of extended release Morphine -one seems to help the other work more effectively, whether I'm taking it for chronic pain on the left side of my body or for a headache.
Also (unrelated but a word of advice), be sure if you take it anywhere with you, it is in its orginial prescription bottle. Even though it can all be worked out and proven that you have a prescription, the police WILL arrest you in the meantime for not having it in the right bottle...this is from my former husband, who has been in law enforcement for over 15 years. It's a pain (no pun intended!), especially if you have several different RX's, but it would be more of a pain to get put in jail for it!
I hope your headaches are under control. Good luck to you!

Fioricet is a combo of Butalbital, Acetaminophen, and Caffeine Tablets. Barbiturates have generally been replaced by benzodiazepines.
First introduced for medical use in the early 1900’s, barbiturates addictions have plagued hundreds of thousands of individuals, including celebrities like Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix and Judy Garland.
Would I use this medication if it worked for me..........yes under the direct supervision of a physician and only as prescribed.
I wish you the best in all things.
