My mother was taking Darvocet N 100 for years, she is 79; she takes several other meds. Dr. has tried Tramadol did not work, he now put her on Fioricet and she is experiencing alot of side affects. What is a good replacement pain killer, she needs something for pain in her legs do to P.A.D.? Allergies: Penacillan and aspirin
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?
