You will suffer rebound headaches with any pain killer

You will suffer rebound headaches no matter what, that happens with any pain killer (fioricet/fiorinal, Tylenol, all NSAIDs, and of course all narcotics, I even heard it can happen with triptans, but I’m not sure about that one) and the only way to deal with that is to tough it out, it can take a few weeks of worse pain before it can get better.

 

But you should be really worried about the Barbituate in the Fioricet, actually Benzos (valium, xanax, klonoin, ect) and barbituates can cause seizures when withdrawaled coldturkey. So I cant stress enough to see a doctor, and if any of them tell you it’s no big deal then see another, it IS a very big deal.

 

The problem is that barbituates was a drug of abuse back in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, and then the benzodiazipine family took over, and people started abusing those instead, so doctors these days dont know alot about the fioricet addiction, just remember that Marilyn Monroe and Elvis abused barbituates, and they beleive it was the cause of their death.

Fioricet Overdose

If you feel the overdose is suspected then contact to your doctor immediately. Symptoms of an Fioricet overdose include

  • insomnia
  • restlessness
  • tremor
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • abdominal pain
  • sweating
  • seizures
  • drowsiness
  • decreased breathing
  • dizziness or fainting
  • confusion
  • an irregular heartbeat
  • coma.

What makes Fioricet addictive is the codeine in it which is a narcotic!! Yes, that will make you feel better as well as kill the pain. It is possible to make the headache condition much worse by taking too many for too long!!

The good news is that you don’t have to carry on that way!!! Firstly please talk to your Doc about the situation, who will hopefully give you a plan on how to cut down gradually, or may have other suggestions. It can be tough coming off meds like that, but dealing with headache all the time make you a pretty tough cookie, so with some grit and determination you WILL do it!!!!

This does not mean that you will never be able to take this for your heads again, you just need support and confidential advice as to how to take them effectively.

I wish you all the best with this, please talk to your Doc or Neuro!

Butalbital APAP to relieve headaches

Almost 90% of headaches result from increased tension in the scalp and neck. Tension headaches (previously called muscle contraction or stress headaches) are usually described as a vise squeezing on both sides of the head or a tight band around the head. The pain can spread to the scalp, face, neck, and shoulder muscles.

Depending on the frequency, tension headaches may be chronic and episodic. Chronic tension headaches occur daily or almost every day, episodic tension headaches occur only a few times a week or month. Individuals who chronically have tension headaches often suffer from stress, anxiety, or depression as well.

Fioricet works best if you take it as soon as you feel a headache coming on. Most tension headaches go away within a few hours.

Fioricet is also used to relieve migraines. Many migraineurs find Fioricet useful when it is taken before lying down in a dark room.

Butalbital

Butalbital is well absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and is expected to distribute to most tissues in the body. Barbiturates in general may appear in breast milk and readily cross the placental barrier. They are bound to plasma and tissue proteins to a varying degree and binding increases directly as a function of lipid solubility.

Elimination of butalbital is primarily via the kidney (59% to 88% of the dose) as unchanged drug or metabolites. The plasma half-life is about 35 hours. Urinary excretion products include parent drug (about 3.6% of the dose), 5-isobutyl-5-(2, 3-dihydroxypropyl) barbituric acid (about 24% of the dose), 5-allyl-5(3-hydroxy-2-methyl-1-propyl) barbituric acid (about 4.8% of the dose), products with the barbituric acid ring hydrolyzed with excretion of urea (about 14% of the dose), as well as unidentified materials. Of the material excreted in the urine, 32% is conjugated.

The in vitro plasma protein binding of butalbital is 45% over the concentration range of 0.5-20 mcg/mL. This falls within the range of plasma protein binding (20%-45%) reported with other barbiturates such as phenobarbital, pentobarbital, and secobarbital sodium. The plasma-to-blood concentration ratio was almost unity, indicating that there is no preferential distribution of butalbital into either plasma or blood cells.

Barbiturates may be habit-forming: Tolerance, psychological dependence, and physical dependence may occur especially following prolonged use of high doses of barbiturates. The average daily dose for the barbiturate addict is usually about 1500 mg. As tolerance to barbiturates develops, the amount needed to maintain the same level of intoxication increases; tolerance to a fatal dosage, however, does not increase more than two-fold.

As this occurs, the margin between an intoxication dosage and fatal dosage becomes smaller. The lethal dose of a barbiturate is far less if alcohol is also ingested. Major withdrawal symptoms (convulsions and delirium) may occur within 16 hours and last up to 5 days after abrupt cessation of these drugs. Intensity of withdrawal symptoms gradually declines over a period of approximately 15 days. Treatment of barbiturate dependence consists of cautious and gradual withdrawal of the drug. Barbiturate-dependent patients can be withdrawn by using a number of different withdrawal regimens. One method involves initiating treatment at the patient’s regular dosage level and gradually decreasing the daily dosage as tolerated by the patient.

Fioricet (Butalbital, Acetaminophen, and Caffeine Tablets, USP) is supplied in tablet form for oral administration.

Each tablet contains the following active ingredients:
butalbital USP . . . . . . . . . .50 mg
acetaminophen USP . . . . 325 mg
caffeine USP . . . . . . . . . . .40 mg

Butalbital has generalized depressant effect on CNS and, in very high doses, has peripheral effects.
Acetaminophen has analgesic and antipyretic effects; its analgesic effects may be mediated through inhibition of prostaglandin synthetase enzyme complex.Caffeine is thought to produce constriction of cerebral blood vessels.

Butalbital (5-allyl-5-isobutylbarbituric acid), is a short to intermediate-acting barbiturate. Acetaminophen (4´-hydroxyacetanilide), is a non-opiate, non-salicylate analgesic and antipyretic.  Caffeine (1,3,7-trimethylxanthine), is a central nervous system stimulant. Inactive Ingredients: crospovidone, FD&C Blue #1 (aluminum lake), magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, povidone, pregelatinized starch, and stearic acid.

Fioricet contains a combination of acetaminophen, butalbital, and caffeine. Acetaminophen is a pain reliever and fever reducer. Butalbital is in a group of drugs called barbiturates. It relaxes muscle contractions involved in a tension headache. Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant. It relaxes muscle contractions in blood vessels to improve blood flow.

Fioricet is used to treat tension headaches that are caused by muscle contractions. Butalbital, barbiturate agent, may be habit-forming. Tolerance, psychological dependence, and physical dependence may occur especially following prolonged use of high doses. The average daily dose for the barbiturate addict is usually about 1500 mg. As tolerance develops, the amount needed to maintain the same level or intoxication increases. Tolerance to a fatal amount, however, does not increase more than two-fold. As this occurs, the margin between an intoxication and fatal dosages becomes smaller.

Fioricet is not an opiate. Fioricet is pain reliever and muscle relaxant. It is non-narcotic. It is most commonly used to help treat tension migraines.

Is Fioricet a Controlled Substance?

Yes. And no. It’s confusing. It also appears to depend on where you live. Butalbital, the active ingredient, is a Schedule III controlled substance, but when it’s combined with caffeine and Tylenol, it isn’t a controlled substance. I assume this is because there’s such a small amount of butalbital in each pill that the person taking enough pills to get high would also be taking too much caffeine and Tylenol. But just like with Lortab (a combination of hydrocodone and Tylenol), addicts often take more medication than they should, even knowing it may damage their livers

If codeine is added to the pill, then it’s a Schedule III Controlled Substance.

How should Fioricet addiction be treated?

Major withdrawal symptoms (convulsions and delirium) may occur within 16 hours and last up to 5 days after abrupt cessation of Fioricet. Intensity of withdrawal symptoms gradually declines over a period of approximately 15 days. Treatment of barbiturate dependence consists of cautious and gradual withdrawal. Barbiturate-dependent persons can be withdrawn by using a number of different withdrawal regimens. One method involves initiating treatment at the person’s regular dosage level and gradually decreasing the daily dosage as tolerated

Barbiturates cause a dangerous physical withdrawal syndrome, so a person who has been using them nearly daily should go to an inpatient detoxification unit, unless the physician decides the withdrawal can be handled as an outpatient with close follow up. Barbiturate withdrawal is treated like alcohol withdrawal, which makes sense, since both attach to the same brain receptors and cause similar effects. Usually a long-acting sedative is started, Fioricet stopped, and the long-acting sedative is slowly tapered over a period of months.

Untreated barbiturate withdrawal, if severe, can be fatal. The person can have seizures and delirium, just like alcohol addicts do.

After physical withdrawal is treated, the real recovery from addiction can begin, with all of the usual psychosocial therapies: individual counseling, group therapy, 12-step meetings, and others.
