Yes and no : In the absence of any contraindications, this combination would be considered safe. However, there are no to very few reasons for an individual to need fiorinal with Codeine (aspirin butalbital caffeine and codeine) for migraine treatment. Many more effective and safer treatment options are available. Your doctor may find that your current medication regimen is contributing to your on going migraines.

Not the best : Your current treatment program is not the most effective way of handling migraine headaches, and accelerating use of analgesics is often followed by the pattern of chronic daily headaches. If you wish to prevent headaches and control when they do occur, see a neurologist, as the best abortive is a triptan, and there are many preventative meds.
