No, Rx: Fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine): butalbital (50 mg) acetaminophen (325 mg) caffeine (40 mg). Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is not an NSAID. Hope it helps.

Taper: If you are using more than one dose a day, drop 1 dose every 3 days. When you are down to one a day, go to every other day, then stop.
