Need medical help: You will need to reduce the dose slowly and at the same time initiated some other non addictive preventive treatment for migraine such as topiramate or topamax or a beta blocker with the use of a triptan such as Imitrex (sumatriptan) for acute attacks. You may need something for anxiety as you withdraw from the barbituric component of fioricet.
