I searched PlanetRx and it says Fioricet is not a controlled substance
and that the maximum dosage recommendation is 6 tablets per day. Yet, because of anxiety and depression, he has been dishin
g out first Xanax, (but it made my headaches worse) then Valium like they were candy! I checked with PlanetRx and both benzodiazepin
es are controlled substances and highly addictive. I realize that the Butalbital in
Fioricet is also addictive--if this is true, then why isn't it a controlled substance?
