Comment:
I have migraines, but they have an underlying cause (scar tissue in a vein in my head). I used Fioricet for the first year or two as a rescue. It worked for a while and then it stopped. In the beginning it made me loopy. I didn't take it terribly often, so I was surprised that I developed a tolerance for it so quickly. It stopped making me loopy and eventually stopped working altogether.

I have had migraines my whole adult life. Have tried every kind of medication, both prescription and holistic, herbal, etc. Fioricet has been the most effective if I take it early enough, at the first signs the headache is coming on. I have not had to resort to Vicodin or go to the ER now for several years.

Comment:
After getting 3 migraines a week all fall/winter I went to my doctor because excedrine no longer helped with migraines. With a 4 year old and working full time, I don't have time to suffer through migraines or constantly call in sick. Went to my doc and we tried Fiorcet. It's the only migraine pill that has helped with the pain and vision issues. Went to a neurologist to see about other op ... Show Full Comment

I only have 4 dosis and already had a really bad skin allergy reaction, besides that the headache is in full force. Dizziness and confusion are the other side effects that I have been having. Great!
