Yes and no: Fiorinal (aspirin butalbital and caffeine) and Codeine are painkillers which can block the pain for a while (and cause drowsiness, other side effects & addiction), but will not get rid of the underlying problem. If you get these severe migraines more than 3 or 4 times a year, or if they last for more than half a day, talk to your doctor about migraine-specific treatments to prevent them or stop them in their tracks.
