.It is used to relieve tension headaches and ids prescribed for other ting, It Contains Acetaminophen, Butalbital, and Caffeine. I was told that some drugs like Fioricet have opiates in them, so if they do show up on a Drug test it would mean it does have some sort of an opiate, And I remember my aunt used to take them along with my Mother for her migraines, and I remember her telling me that Fioricet contained a little bit of Percocet, and Barbituate's in it. And as far as I know, they don't check for barbiturates on a state drug test, they are really only looking for Cocaine, Heroin, PCP, MDMA, and Crystal Meth. I am not really sure about the Phenobarbital coming up in a regular state drug test, so you shouldn't have anything to worry about. So Good Luck and I Hope I was Helpful.

New york Guy is partially right. Fioricet is acetaminophen (hence the cet at the end), caffiene and butalbital which is a mild barbiturate. They are used for tension and migraine headaches. Some do have codeine in them-it would be a fioricet with codeine or fioricet #3. They do not have percocet in them! If they screen for barbiturates it might show or if they are the kind with codeine they may show. If you have a script you shouldnt have to worry. Otherwise it will depend on what they are looking for in the screen.

Yes. I know first hand. I am prescribed Fioricet and have taken tests and I had to have my Dr fax my script to the screening place to verify. It's because of the butalbital. It will cause you to fail. Most doctors warn patients of this when prescribed to them. At least nine did. If its not your script, I wouldn't take them.
