I have used Fiorinal for over 30 years and like others try to use it sparingly. My goal is to only use it no more than 10 pills per month - usually less. It is the only thing that works for my headaches. I have tried all other over the counter medicine and they do nothing. I find that if I catch the headache early one pill will do the trick. However, if I wait too long it may not work. I have Fioricet for bad headaches but I don't like the side effects of the codeine. I rarely ever use it. The only bad thing with Fiorinal is that I can't take it at night because the caffeine will keep me awake. My pharmacist says that they may discontinue the drug in a few years - I hope not as I need it.

I've been getting headaches most of my life. I started taking Fiorinal for the past 30 years. I find it to be a "miracle" for my headaches as long as I take it when I feel the headache starting. If I wait until the headache develops, it takes longer to work, but the headache does go away.

Headache treatment is different for everybody, but this is the only medicine that has ever worked for me. It gets rid of the headache 95% of the time!

Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't on my tension headaches. Seems to work better than Aspirin and Caffeine alone, but not by much.

Felt like the headache was squeezed out of my head.

I have been using this medication for my complex tension headaches for 2 years now. I have a condition that causes chronic muscle spasms/trigger points in my upper back, shoulders, and neck. In turn the spasms start a chain reaction which results in severe headaches. This is the only medication that has successfully relieved my pain, and it does it without any adverse effects, and very quickly. 2 capsules, either at the same time or within an hour of each other, and the pain is on its way and I am able to move and turn my head again.

I have used Fiorinal for 31 years. I use it sparingly, so as not to develop any resistance to it (I don't want my body to not respond to it). It works wonderfully on my headaches ... I can take 2 caps, lie down in a dark room for 20-30 minutes and my headache is gone. I have found that I take less medication when I take 2 at a time. If I take only 1 capsule, I will have to take at least 2 more doses ... and wait 4 hrs between doses ... before the headache is gone. This way, the headache is gone quickly and I use the minimum amount of Fiorinal.

Fiorinal is the ONLY pain medicine that will help my headache to any degree of satisfaction. Thanking God for it.

I start taking this medicine about 7 years ago. I used to have this very bad headaches and my Doctor kept giving me others medicines that never worked, at that time my husband had a prescription for Fiorinal to cure his tention headaches and one day when I was in a very bad shape, he suggested me to have one. After 1/2 hour I start felling the release. Since then I have my own prescription. It worked wonderful for me and my husband (we are both professionals and very busy at work).

This medication works great for my tension headaches. I only need them once or twice a week; taking two relieves the headache or at least reduces it so much that it does not bother me.

Fiorinal works on my headaches when nothing else would. I have not noticed any side effects. Recommend it highly for those pesky tension headaches
