Fioricet Brand Now Manufactured By Different Pharmaceutical Company

I couldn't understand why the brand name fioricet, which always worked in the past, was not working today. I did some research and discovered that the previous manufacturer was Watson Pharmaceutical who were bought out by Actavis Pharmaceutical. I called the FDA to leave a msg asking if the formulation Actavis sells as the brand name is identical to the one by Watson. When I get a reply, I will post. This happened once before with one of my mother's Parkinson's meds. I learned, when the new company manufactured it, the 'active" ingredients remained the same but there was a slight difference in the inactive ingredients. In my mind that should make it a generic, but was not the case. If you have concerns/complaints, I would suggest going on the FDA website and call or email them. They were very responsive and quite nice when I called previously about my mother's medication. Also, the more people who contact the FDA, the better chance something is done to address the issue.
