No: Fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) has acetaminophen as a major component. Given your prior history, taking fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) with Tylenol would not be recommended. Always read labels carefully.

Is fioricet(plain) and norco10/325 a good combination for tension/migraines? It seems to be the only thing that has worked for me. My new dr disagrees
Not a good plan: Fioricet ; Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) are habit-forming medications, and migraine can be a very long-term problem. Beyond conventional meds, many nutritional interventions may help, such as adding magnesium. Coq10, riboflavin (vit b2), and herbal feverfew. Eliminate coffee/caffeine, and monitor your diet for food sensitivities. Biofeedback and other mind-body approaches can help too. http://tinyurl.com/y883ulg. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Be cautious: I would try and avoid taking up to 3000mg of tylenol on a regular basis regardless of what source. While 3000mg/24 is an accepted dosing amount. The potential for cumulative toxicity is still significant especially if you take it regularly. Also, be very cautious if you have liver problems, consume alcohol or take other medications metabolized in the liver. Hope that helps. ...Read more
