There is a form of Fioricet that has codeine in it. If you have plain Fioricet it doesnt have codeine but it does have butalbital which is a mild barbiturate and it can make you feel like you are a little drunk. Fioricet with codeine or Fioricet #3 has 30mg of codeine in it as well as all the other ingredients that plain Fioricet has and codeine is a Schedule 3 opioid (or narcotic). If you are unsure of which kind you have, you can ask your pharmacist. With both kinds, Fioricet and Fioricet #3, you should not drive or do any activities that require you to be alert until you know how you react to the medication so if it makes you feel woozy, you shouldnt perform any tasks that require you to be alert like drive.
