Limit use of Fiorcet: Fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) is a combination drug of butalbital (a barbiturate) acetaminophen, (aspirin) and caffeine. Affective for tension headache; however, the barbiturate could cause euphoria, drowsiness, intoxicated feeling and light- headedness. Must utilize in a cautious manner. Habit forming and overuse could extenuate symptoms. Butalbital has a half life of 36-38 hrs. Better to use short term; spec. rxs.
