I was using Fiorinal for about 10 years when my new dr decided she wanted me to try maxalt. Well, maxalt works but is quite expensive and quite frankly the fiorinal worked a little better. The maxalt doesnt seem to keep the migraine gone for more than a day or two! So yesterday she called in Fioricet for me. I have liver issues so I asked her to change it to Fiorinal. She said she isnt comfortable prescribing Fiorinal. Does anyone know what the difference between the two Rx's are besides Fiorinal has aspirin and Fioricet has tylenol???
