Hello,

Margesic, is a nonnarcotic analgesic (pain killer) and relaxant, prescribed for the relief of migraine and other tension headache symptoms that do not respond to regular over-the-counter (OTC) analgesics. Margesic combines a sedative barbiturate (butalbital) with aspirin and caffeine.

Margesic Hydrocodone/acetaminophen is a combination of a narcotic (hydrocodone) and a non-narcotic (acetaminophen) used to relieve moderate to severe pain. Hydrocodone works by binding to opioid receptors in the brain and spinal cord, and acetaminophen decreases the formation of prostaglandins, therefore relieving pain.
