Fioricet is for headaches. It has acetaminophen, caffeine and butalbytal which is a barbiturate. Fiorinal has aspirin but he may have thought the butalb. would help her legs relax. The side affects could b from either caffeine or butal. Ask him for somnething else since she is having problems with this. It is mainly a headache med.What are her side afffects?
