Common Questions and Answers about Fioricet and ibuprofen

oxycontin

I have been taking fioricet for many years and I have not used any fioricet since Tuesday night, (today is Saturday). I don't know if I went through any withdrawals, but I know that I was an utter mess... My hormones are all out of whack and I have been an emotional wreck anyway... So here's my question.
(This was a lie)The other doctor talked with Maria and they realized then that my mother was having a problem. They confronted her and told her that she needs stop taking the fioricet, she said NO- THAT IS THE ONLY THING THAT WORKS!, So Maria told her that she will not prescribe that medicine to her anymore. She also suggested that my mom see a scychiatrist. She said that she seems to be having episodes of scychosis.
I am taking fioricet for headaches and it has acetamenaphin. I have heard alot of negative things about actamenaphen. That is the only medication I am taking and I donot drink. I have been taking this medication for awhile and it seems to be the only one that has helped my headaches so far. The doctor tried me on several different meds, and this is the only one that stopped the headache before it became a migrane.
and also...what meds have you tried besides just the fioricet and how have they worked? actually...was the fioricet actually working for you?
I have been taking fioricet for approximately 15 years, on and off, for migraine and tension headaches. For the past year and a half I have been ordering off of the Internet and have increased my dosage to 3 to 6 a day. I desperately want to stop taking the fioricet but I'm afraid I'm addicted I live in a very small town and am afraid to admit this to anyone or seek help from a local doctor. Can ANYONE HELP ME??
But, i can say that, right now, i ve been without Fioricet since last friday, when i took 4 and Im feeling super anxious.. trembling, i have nausea and dizziness, cant think straight. Im not sure whats going on, but what i do know is that is not good. Im sure if I take the Fioricet I have in my kitchen it will all go away.. im sure. but after reading your responses in this Forum, i know I shouldnt.
Hello, I heard that taking Fioricet and birth control pills can be bad? Is this true and why? and does this differ from taking medicine like Excedrin, Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc and birth control pills?
The Fioricet with Codeine should probably work better then the regular Fioricet, since Codeine is an opiate and opiates tend to be very strong pain killers. I hope that it works better for you than the regular Fioricet. Neurotin is a very powerful pain preventative medication. I have never heard of anyone taking it for migraine prevention before, but I know that it works wonders for chronic pain...
I wanted to comment on ibuprofen during pregnancy. Do NOT take it. It is similar to aspirin and causes uterine contractions. While taking it doesn not guarantee a miscarriage, it certainly increases the risk. There are safe prescription meds if the Tylenol does not help. A pregnant woman can take Tylenol 3 and Fioricet during pregnancy. They do recommend not taking it during the last trimester. I can't remember the reasoning.
Hello - I have two herniated discs in my back, and am almost 6 months pregnant. I have taken Vicodin (1-2 pills a day) for excruciating pain in my back on and off over the last 2 months. My doctor said it was ok, but I read that Vicodin is a category "C" drug, with unknown side effects on the fetus. Can anyone comment on whether this could be harmful to my baby, at this dosage, and any personal experiences anyone else may have?? Thank you!!
I am suffering with migraInes bad and my ob prescribed fioricet. I also have anxiety problems and he prescribed aterax. I am 31 weeks pregnant now and still take these meds. Everything looks ok so far. I am worried if these meds will affect her.
It can occur with all the commonly used headache medications such as ibuprofen, triptans (such as imitrex), fioricet, and commonly with any type of narcotic such as tylenol #3, dilaudid, percocet, etc. The treatment is difficult, but basically involves weaning off the offending agent and replacing it with another that is later weaned off, combined with a more long-term solution.

Ovaries=Hormones so why did they say that the hot flashes and hormone junk is normal? I had been taking YAZ for a long time and went off it suddenly. That may be the hormone issue. Don't know and don't care. I just want it to go away! My pharmacist said that his wife had the same problem.
I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Nope, just out thousands and thousands of dollars and bills so big that my family and I are struggling. I just don't know what to do or where to turn? I am 32 years old and take more pills then an 90 year old takes. Anyone have any ideas for me?!
Hello Doctor, I am 28 weeks pregnant and I suffer from terrible migraines. I have been taking way too many Fioricet (about 6-8 a day) throughout my term. My OB is aware that I take the Fioricet, but just not how many. I have recently "tried" to cut down on them and started taking Tylenol PM, which contains Diphenhydramine, on a nightly basis. It helps the pain a little and allows me to sleep a full night through sometimes.
They taught us a lot of great relaxation techniques and how to meditate and work through the pain. Most recently, when I decided to give up the Percs (and Fioricet) something kept popping up in books, magazines, etc. and I decided to give it a try. It's called Reiki. It's a hands off (some do a little hands on) healing process done by a trained Reiki practitioner. It's been awesome!
I take codeine w/Fioricet.. My doctor said it was OK just don't take Ibuprofen for aches until four hours after. I found my pretreatment headaches were much worse then the type I am getting now. As far as the codiene/foricet I find it to do little now. I think sometimes just an Ibuprofen helps as much. Personally I agree with Dragonhater, get whatever you can from your doctor to make yourself comfortable.
I have been on opiates for just over a year now, maybe longer, they have been spaced out and my doctor keeps changing them on me, Vicodin, Vicodin ES, Fioricet w/ Codeine, pure codeine, and l as of late, Lortab. I have been on Lortab for a solid 3 months, and I take 1-2 pills a day, sometimes it is 4 if I have a bad day, well, 4 is rare.

If the headaches persist beyond this point, and remain moderate or severe, preventive medicine should be instituted Typical anti-inflammatories include aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen.
So I've been getting migraines since like 8th grade and now I'm 9 wks and I usually take extra strength ibuprofen or excedrin migraine.....I had a debilitating migraine last night. Took the Tylenol and it only got worse. I was a hot mess in the bed until now at 5am. Smh.... what are some remedies I can try next time? omg I really thought my head was going to explode or something..
I am curious for those of you with post fossa decompression surgeries, are you still having headaches and what have you been taking to relieve these? I have been on Fioricet and well due to its addictive qualities I'd much rather get off because working nights again and having an almost 2 year old now I find myself using them more often and I am starting to get rebound headaches from trying to cut it out.
My first neurologist prescribed Cymbalta 60mg daily, Rozerem and Fioricet. The rozerem does not help at all with the sleep. I need to take 2 Fioricet's to make any headaches go away but I find that taking two will make me extremely tired. As far as the Cymbalta, I don't feel any different mentally but I'm not sure what I'm supposed to feel. I do work in a stressful job and for the past year have had many additional stressors.
Only Tylenol is safe. Advil/ ibuprofen will close up a hole in the babies heart and kill it. Don't the anything but Tylenol. Look up advil and closing of the fetal patent ductus arteriosis.
plastic surgery in July (breast reduction and tummy tuck; high blood pressure and I am hypoglecemic. My PCP states he heard something in my neck and has ordered a Caritoid Ultrasound but I am concern that this is not my problem and it is something we are missing. I am having a low grade headache;some low grade burred vision; dizziness when turning over in the bed and some facial pain behind my eyes. Please tell me if we should be looking at other things.
If nothing else is working, ask your Dr for Fioricet. Cheap, prego safe, helps with migraines. Good luck!
