Take them back, fioricet and Tramadol are not anywhere near the same drug! Either the pharmacy made a mistake or your Dr changed your medication (if they had to call him/her for refill auth, it is possible that they changed it). If your refill was requested for Tramadol and the Dr changed it, the pharmacist or the Drs office should have notified you that your Dr changed your medication. Good Luck and good for you for questioning what you got!
Fioricet is not a generic for tramadol. I have tramadol HCL 50 mg. It is a small white pill with the imprint of: AN627. Good catch! I'm glad you asked the question instead of assuming you had the right medication. Sometimes the pharmacy will switch brands and there might be a difference. Either way, anytime your meds do not look the same as they have in the past, question, question, question it! Taking the fioricet if you were alergic to any ingrediant in it could have had fatal consequences. Make sure to document who you talk with at the pharmacy. You should ask to speak to the Supervisor. The supervisor needs to know which employee made the mistake. If your doctor changed your med without telling you, shame on him. Let us know what happened. I'm sure we are all curious.
