A friend told me that she takes a pill called Floricet for headaches. I would like to know more about it but I do not know what it looks like? Is anywone familiar with it? Or how it works?
Fioricet is an out-dated treatment for migraine headaches. It comes in tablet form, is blue or white in color, round and about the size of a Tylenol tab. It's a compound of caffeine, butalbital (barbiturate) and acetaminophen (Tylenol). The caffeine constricts blood vessels that are overly dilated or in spasm, Tylenol is for pain and butalbital has a mild sedative effect.
Fioricet is highly addictive!!! Migraines are usually a long-term hereditary illness; this isn't a long-term solution. IMO, it should have been taken off the market years ago. Please, please, please look for another treatment option.
