is fioricet and ultram the same or close to the same

I have taken fioricet/fiorinal for headaches for years. The caffeine and butalbytal work on the veins in your head and ease your stress (counteracting each other so you don't get too nervous from the caffeine) and the asp or tyl is for a lilttle pain releif. I got incredibly addicted to fiorinal - I loved it and didn't feel normal without it for a couple of years. I took ultram for a torn labrium in my shoulder - I believe it is more for a pain like an injury. That's what the Dr. said anyway but this was the same Dr. that gave me so much fiorinal I could have started a business with it. I think most Dr.s don't realize the potential for it's abuse because the ingredients sound like excedrin. It's that butalbytal that gets you and it is what gets rid of the head ache most of the time. I haven't heard of too many poeple that got like I did I just like to warn everyone because the butal.
is in the barbiturate family and when I detoxed from it it was just like hell on earth and I really was very sick. Good luck and hope you don't have too many more headaches - nothing is more horrible than a bad headache that won't go away - especially if you are working or have kids running around. You would almost take anything to get rid of it. It is an excellent drug tho.

i was given fiorcet for migraine headaches which really does help. it is also full of caffine. on top of that i suffer from seizures so when the doctor gave them to me i was told to make sure to take them exactly as she said cause they are known to make seizures resurface. i used caution when taking them.

My Dr game me fioriceet for head aches It has caffeen in it and it has been known to cause sizerous if not taken as Dr tells you and it is habbit formal to. And I was perscribed Ultarm for pain and taking them both together seem to cause more sizerious, I was told by my Dr not to take them together so I went off the ultram to help the prolem.but if you were prescribed the medicine contact your Dr before stoping them.I have had problems with both them and took both but the fiorceet helped my head aches but make me really nervous.
