I have some percocets left over from when I had some wisdom teeth pulled 3 months ago and I am also prescribed BUTALBITAL/APAP/CAFFIENE tabs for migraines. I was wondering what the difference was and which of the two was stronger. Also which was safer. THANKS

The percocet is stronger, but they both have addictive qualities though. I don't really like the Fioricet products because they seem to be more addictive in migraine pts, this is just from my experience in pharmacy. As long as you don't need them every day the fioricet are probably the safer way to go for lesser migraines and the percocet for more severe you-want-to-die migraines. The dependence seems to happen in those who take the pills more out of fear of getting a bad migraine and begin using them all of the time. As long as it is infrequent most drugs are safe. Hopefully I don't confuse you.:)
