I was suffering from sinus and headache since 5 years. I have taken a lot of medicine and I have also done ct scans. But I doesn't show anything. Right now I am taking IC butal-acet-caff, propranolol, gabapentanin, and neproxalin but it doesn't help me. Can you please tell me the right treatment for sinus and migraine headache. Thanks.... ## Hello, Chandra! How are you doing? Sorry that you've been suffering such bad headaches. However, there really isn't any 'right' treatment. It's really a matter of trial and error to find out what works for you to relieve your pain and misery. Has your doctor ever had you try the narcotic Dilaudid? It's actually the first line choice in most ERs if someone presents with a severe migraine. This is a narcotic analgesic, ... ...

Can I take a butal-asa-caff capsule (50/325/40) while taking buspirone? ## Hello, Paula! How are you? You can take them together, if your doctor has instructed you to do so, but the Buspirone may reduce the efficacy of the Butalbital. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Yes, is Lexapro a safe med for anxiety/depression? ...

I'm having a severe headache and have been for 3 days. Went to Dr yesterday and they gave me a script for a headache pill but it didn't work. They also gave me a pain shot and steroid shot that didn't work! Today they called in a script for butalb acetaminophen caffeine 50 300 40 and it's not working. How long should it take for this to work or should I go to see if I need any tests ran? ## It should start to help within 15 to 20 minutes of taking it, according to the NIH, since it is a regular release medication. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and stomach pain. Are you on any other medications? Has the headache eased, yet? ## I'm not on any other meds and today is the first day without a headache in 7 days . ...

Is it possible to overdose on this drug in a way that causes death? What are the symptoms? ## Hello, From what I can gather, this combination can potentially be fatal, but you would have to ingest a very significant amount. A serious overdose of butalbital and acetaminophen may result in toxicity. Toxicity due to caffeine is less likely, due to the fairly small amounts in this formulation. The symptoms of overdosing on these medications are as follows: Butalbital: toxicity from Barbituate poisoning may include confusion, drowsiness, and coma; respiratory depression; hypotension; and hypovolemic shock. Acetaminophen: dose-dependent, potentially fatal hepatic necrosis is the most serious adverse effect. Renal tubular necroses, hypoglycemic coma, and coagulation defects may also occur. Ear... ...

Do you think taking half a butalb will have any effect? Sorta afraid to take the whole pill... Headache is due to vertigo.. It's hard to read, but I think it's a 40mg pill. ## Hello, Jack!

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, insomnia and nervousness. And yes, you can try taking just half of one, if your doctor approves. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

is this medication appropriate for treatment of swelling in the ethmoid sinus? ## Although this medication is used a pain reliever for headaches (containing Butalbital, Acetaminophen, and Caffeine) I don't think it has anti-inflammatory properties. That said, I don't know if it would actually help with swelling, although it should relieve some of the pain. ## Butalb-Acetaminophen was prescribed for my severe frontal lobe/ sinus headaches. The Prescription reads "take one tablet every 6-8 hours as needed for headache". Well, they're 100% right on! If yoy WANT a headache that lasts 6-8 hours after administering, take one! It was a NIGHTMARE of pain and icepacks for me. ...

I have been prescribed this for cluster headaches. I am also a heart patient. This does not seem to do the trick for breaking the cycle. What would u recommend? ## Hello, Mike! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. What medications do you take for your heart condition? Some of them can cause headaches as side effects, as reported by the FDA. So it could be that one of them needs to be adjusted or changed, rather than trying something to treat the headaches. Many of them can also cause dehydration, which can worsen the problem. ...

I have bad migraines maybe twice a week and I just had major back surgery and I also have a script for hydrocodone.....I'm not sure but I feel like I'm dragging myself around. ...I want to sleep and I feel exhausted....I know my migraine can make me tired but this is way more than normal.....is it the side effects of the 2 meds? ## Hello, Lindsey! How are you? It is most likely due to the Hydrocodone, since it is a narcotic and is well known to cause those types of side effects. It also carries the risk of being habit forming and as listed by the FDA may cause other side effects, including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, headache and constipation. It would be best to consult your doctor to be sure, though. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Butalbital is often combined with other medications, such as acetaminophen (paracetamol) or aspirin, and is commonly prescribed for the treatment of pain and headache. The various formulations combined with codeine are FDA-approved for the treatment of tension headaches. Butalbital has the same chemical formula as talbutal but a different structure—one that presents as 5-allyl-5-isobutylbarbituric acid.[2] Content...

My endodontist prescribed this for pain after doing a root canal. Will this be of help under these circumstances? ## Hello, Ronnie! How are you? This medication is most commonly used to treat migraines and tension headaches. The Acetaminophen in it may help with some pain relief from the root canal, but I doubt it will do much. Have you tried it, yet? The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, nervousness, insomnia, sedation and stomach irritation. ## Hi! I ended up not using the medication. I had very little discomfort after the root canal and just took a couple of Advil. All the possible side affects kinda worried me also. Thanks for answering.

How long does it take for the pain from a bad migraine to go away? I've been taking the pills for 3 days and I still have my bad migraine. ## Hello, Char! How are you? I am so sorry about the migraine. It should have helped by now, if it was going to do so. As detailed by the NIH, these types of medication usually start to work within 15 to 20 minutes of taking them, so relief should be felt soon after. It might be time to explore other migraine relief options, such as different medications. Dilaudid is often used by hospital ERs to treat them. Have you ever tried it? It's an idea you can discuss with your doctor, anyway. The FDA does warn that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, and constipation. ## Char M... ...
