Fiorice (generic)

What markings does the Fioricet/Butalbital have on the white tablet and who is the manufacturer? I can not take the blue tablet form as something in it makes me ill. Thank you. ## Fioricet contains the active ingredients Acetaminophen, Butalbital and Caffeine, it is most commonly used to treat migraines. These are several white tablets on the market, since it is available as a generic and I can pinpoint any specifically, since you didn't list your dosage. I also don't have a list of manufacturers for all of them, however, here are some markings on the white tablets, so you can see if you recognize any: White, round, 2355 V (Vintage/Qualitest Pharmaceuticals) White, oval, MIA 110 White, oval, 2357 V (VIntage/Qualitest Pharmaceuticals) White, oval, 3416 WPI White, oblong M (in a s...

Need Dr. in KY for Fioricet prescription

I live in the Richmond Ky area. Just moved here a few years ago and since I cannot get fioricet online anymore for my headaches and fibromyalgia pain, am having extreme trouble finding a dr willing to prescribe. Does anyone have a dr willing to prescribe it anywhere in the Lexington, Richmond or Irvine area? I have no life dealing with the pain without them. ## Hello, SuzyQ! How are you? Well, it does contain the barbiturate Butalbital, which has sometimes been abused, so this medication is usually only prescribed as a last resort, when other options have failed. Additionally, if you go to a doctor and ask for a specific medication, they are taught to see that as being drug seeking behavior, so they will always be very reluctant to prescribe it. This medication may cause side effects, s...

Fioricet Pills Should Require A Prescription

I so do not get why u can buy Fioricet WITHOUT seeing a Dr. My best friend committed suicide last year. He had OVER 800 Fioricet pills on him when he died!!! To me this is UNACCEPTABLE. He should've never been able to buy this many pills without seeing a Dr. What can I do to propose stiffer laws so this won't happen again to anyone? ## What can I do to make sure this doesn't happen to anymore people??? ## In the U.S. this medication does require a prescription, it is not available over the counter. It contains a combination of Acetaminophen, Butalbital and Caffeine. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, stomach irritation, and insomnia. Did they definitively say it was the Fioricet tha...

Does anyone take Lannett Fioricet? I'm used to Mikart brand.

I'd get a second opinion or maybe a third too before switching manufacturers of Fioricet. Suicide is huge with these drugs and there is no way to figure out who is going to be affected. It also changes the brain. It could potentially cause them lifelong difficulty. No one will tell you the awful adverse effects of coming off them. I would check for a vitamin and mineral deficiency, gut bacterial imbalance, possible brain injury and most importantly look at the environment and the people around you. Please exhaust all other possible causes before starting this drug meant for adult brains. It could be an infection like strep or inflammation from an immune system that won't shut down. You need to know big pharma is pushing doctors to prescribe off-label for the sole purpose of incr...

Mikart generic fioricet

Does Mikart make a generic Fioricet? I know they stopped making it for awhile, but they definitely worked the best for me. Hopefully, they will again!! ## Yes I was getting that same generic for Fioricet and had the MIA on one side and 110 on the other I believe those worked very well it seems like every time something works well they take it away ## Is Mikart still making the generic Fioricet 110? My pharmacy says it can no longer get it. ## Hi Dee, yes they do. It's a white oblong pill that says MIA on one side and 110 on the other side. That pill worked the best for me as far as any generic for Fioricet; and the Mikart brand is so difficult to get. They actually sold it to another company. If you need further details I can give you the company’s name and they will find a lo...

generic fioricet LCI 1695

Pls tell me what company makes this generic fioricet with LCI 1695 and light blue in color. Is it Lannett Co.? Are they a good generic company? Watson white tabs do NOT work for me. Is this blue pill good for HA? ## Hi Doggielover, Just to confirm, the manufacturer of that generic Fiorcet is Lannett Company, Inc.. This medication is commonly used in the treatment of headache, but is also regarded as an analgesic combination. As to the company's reputation on generics, I honestly haven't heard much about them. But I believe this is really something that can turn out to be very different for each individual going through their own personal experience with the medication. So you may just to have give it a trial run and see how it works out for you. You can learn more about this dru...

Itching after taking medicine

After years of taking fioricet & fiorinal, under drs. care, I have noticed that I have an itch on legs and feet after taking meds when tension migraine hits. I have fear that I may becoming allergic to aspirin and or acetominephine. I don't know what to do (itching not severe) if I can't take meds. when headache occurs. Help! ## Hi, I also itch when on the drug Vicoden. But, When I take them as prescribed instead of randomly my itching goes away- a lot of side affects go away after proper use of the drug. I would let your doctor know about this and ask him/her if this symptom will go away with prescribed use. To relieved my itching I took an allergy pill ( ATARAX ). For My dry mouth: by using BIOTEN. Hope this helps. HI VERNON ! ## dear friend , infact i am also facing the s...

fioricet - MIA 110

Does anyone have info. re: ordering from the internet for generic fioricet with imprint MIA 110? Didn't have problems until this year with orders -- having tension/migraine type pain and pressure for many years every day; would appreciate any info. possible. Thanks. ## Hi Casey, Depending on whether or not you ordered your medication from a legitimate pharmacy, it can actually be quite common for mistakes to arise. What types of problems are you experiencing with your order exactly? Is something wrong with the actual placement of your order, or are you just referring to the quality of your medication? If you could please post back in more detail that would be great. It may also be wise to discuss those side effects with your doctor, who can suggest some safer treatment options for y...

how long will fioricet stay in your system

how long will fioricet stay in your system? ## how long does fiorcet stay in yor system ## 24 hours or so, depending on how long you have been taking it and how often. Do you have a prescription for it? ## yes, I have a prescription for it, I've been taking it for a few years. I have to drug test on Monday for a job and I'm not sure if I should stop taking it. ## If you have a prescription for it, there should be no reason to stop taking. Bring your prescription bottle to the drug test so the MRO can get a copy of the label, to prove it is a prescription. If the effects of the drug with interfer with the job duties, it is better that you are not in that position, especially if it is a safety sensative position. ## I have an appt with sub doc Monday, 21 December.

I am not insane...The new Fioricet is NOT the same....

So, I've been taking the "old tablet", gross, bitter fioricet for unremitting trigeminal Neuralgia for about 6 years off and when my horrible TN kicks in. It has ALWAYS BEEN my miracle drug. Literally, I ran the gamut of headache meds. I'm 54 and have been getting aura, aura loop migraines since I was 16; then Trigeminal Neuralgia, nicely nicknamed, "The Suicide Disease" was found 6 years ago. It brings me to my knees....BBBBUUUT! The new capsule formulation of Fioricet does ZERO for it now, but it does make me vomit copiously with no relief from what used to be my miracle drug. I am on ACA and they don't want to pay for the old formulation, (they even went so far as to tell me that pill form never existed., so my pharmacist ordered it and I brought a pic, sh...

Safe Preventive Migraine Medication

I used to average about 1-2 migraines a month, so my primary care doctor prescribed me Fioricet. This usually takes care of the migraine within a couple of hours (not without making me feel kind of drunk though). However, the frequency of my migraines has increased and I'm averaging about one a week, so my primary care prescribed me Topamax. I started it even though I was weary of all of its alarming side effects, and I had to stop it due to the crippling anxiety it has caused me. I plan to talk with my doctor again about getting on a different medication, but I was hoping for some advice. Has anyone tried Elavil for preventing migraines, and if so, how were its side effects? I've heard that some of its side effects are dizziness (which concerns me as I have a daily commute) and...

fioricet manufacturer generic

I can no longer get blue Westward 787 Fioricet. I bought Vantage 2355 but it makes me feel awful and does not help my headache, but creates a more intense one. What to do? Is there another pill similar to Westward 787? ## Hello Bird, Unfortunately there is no way to know for certain which generic will work best for you until you keep testing out different ones. Different manufacturers use different "inactive" ingredients, which may cause reactions similar to the one you've experienced with the generic Fiorocet from Vantage. Have you tried the generic Fioricet from Mikart Inc.? They manufacturer an oblong white pill with the imprint MIA 110. It is scored down the middle and blank on the other side. This pill contains (325 mg) of Acetaminophen, + (50 mg) of Butalbital + (40 mg...

But/apap/caf cap act generic for Fioricet 50-300-40 mg cap every 8 hours

What is this for? they are light blue capsules with a design of a head. And has Fioricet written on it. ## Hello, Tater bug! How are you? Fioricet is most commonly used to treat migraine and severe tension headaches. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, nervousness and insomnia. Is there anything else I can help with? It's surprising that you found one, since many people are having trouble finding the name brand in stock, anywhere. It makes me wonder if it might be an older one. ## What is the pain medicine in it. ## Acetaminophen, Butalbital and Caffeine. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## Is this capsule time released? ## I have a pill that is a white caplet with a J on one side and a 4 and a 2 on the other side. Is ...

Increased cost of Fioricet?

Has anyone else noticed a drastically increased cost of generic Fioricet in the last month or so? My last rx on 4/1 was 88.00 and my new rx today was 246.00!!!!

Discount for Fioricet 50 300 40 capsules

These caps are expensive. Made in cap form & only difference in dosage is that the APAP in caps is 300 mg vs the APAP in tab form is 325 mg. Any info on coupons for the caps? I've tried a lot of the coupons & still remain $70 to $100 for 60. My Dr has written them specifically for TABLET form but the pharmacy said they are only carrying the caps. Thanks so much. ## CVS in NH always, always has the tablets. I’ve been taking this for years and have never been given a capsul. If you have AAA (for your car) a lot of chain pharmacies will have a good discount if you show them the card. My $90 Adderall prescription was only $30 and my pharmacist told me someone got a $900 pet prescription for $90. It’s worth a try. Just make sure you print the discount card from AAA...

Difference in Fioricet pills

Have used generic Fioricet from Qualitest for quite some time. They helped with migraines. Now all of a sudden my pharmacy is using Watson-the blue pill and I cannot take them. They make me nauseous and do nothing for the pain. There is a difference in manufacturers. Anyone else have this problem or a solution. ## Yes, there can sometimes be differences in the substances in medications from one manufacturer to another. Unfortunately, some people are very sensitive to these differences and end up with medications that will not work for them. The only real solution would be to ask the pharmacy if they can get the other ways back in stock for you or call around to other pharmacies to see if they carry it. Are you doing any better, yet? ## Have called around to different pharmacies but they...
