Hi missi1. Fioricet is normally prescribed for tension and migraine headaches. It can be addicting due to the barbiturate component. It has been prescribed "off label" for other uses. Please check with your doctor.
Best wishes,

As Chris said, it is usually given as a headache med. Is it plain fioricet or fioricet with codeine? If it is the codeine type you may be better off with Tylenol with codeine for sciatic pain. I have had a patient who stated she had tried multiple pain relievers for her back pain and nothing worked. Out of desperation one day (she had them, the plain fioricet, prescribed for headaches) she tried one for her back pain and discovered they worked better than anything for her. So, on that note, it may but it is not what it is usually indicated for.
