I take fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) (w/o codiene) for tension headaches and found that it also helps with my back pain. Is there another drug that would also help both?

I take fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) (w/o codiene) for tension headaches and found that it also helps with my back pain. Is there another drug that would also help both?

No narcotics: Although the Codeine helps with pain, the effectiveness will decrease over time as you build up a tolerance to the medication. It is also addictive and is not designed to be used long term. Try anti-inflammatories (i.e. Aleve, (naproxen) motrin, etc) and stay active by working on your core muscle strength. Being as light and fit as you can be will help greatly. ...Read more
