4-6 hours apart: Would be safe and ok. Ask your dr about the exact cause of your headache. Take care!

Yes: Tramadol is an opioid and is commonly used to treat painful conditions. Fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) is commonly used to treat headache. You can take them a few hours apart (at least 3-4 hours apart).
