I take fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) 4 pills daily. What and how long will I take for me to become addicted. I had 4 headaches a week. Now none?

Difficult to say. You will become tolerant (takes more to achieve same effect) and physically addicted (you will feel poorly when u stop taking) fairly quickly at those doses - 1w-6w? I certainly suggest you see a headache specialist (neurologist, pain doc) - there are better medications for long-term use. Hope this helps.

Avoid Rebound. This can occur with repeated, as-needed dosing of your meds and worsens with time. If your headaches have not been evaluated or are worsening you need medical evaluation. You probably need surpressive medications which can reduce how often and how severe your headaches become. See your doc to get started.
Cause of headache. Treating the headache with pain med does not resolve the cause and the pain med stops working. Could be neck problem that would be resolved with prolotherapy and the headaches will be gone. May be tension or migraine and require a different type of program. Visit my we page at www. Proloshot.

Migraines. There are two approaches to treating migraine. Abortive medications such as fioricet, Imitrex, Relpax (eletriptan). The other approach is the prophylactic approach with meds such as Topamax. In your case it sounds like you may have migraines and med rebound headaches. Consider asking your neurologist for a preventive therapy.
