I had read that West Ward fioricet was off the market. This medicine helped so much with my headaches. Can you please tell me if the West Ward fioricet will be available soon?

Hi tam213,

According to the drug's main webpage, Fioricet products containing 325 mgs of acetaminophen have in-fact been discontinued.

New formulations of Fioricet & Fioricet w/ Codeine reportedly contain 300 mgs of acetaminophen per capsule to meet the FDA's safety guidelines surrounding acetaminophen dosing limitations.

I'm not sure when it's supposed to be back on the shelves, if it's not already. But I would suggest contacting West-Ward Pharmaceuticals directly for additional details at:

I hope this info helps!

I have been in contact with West Ward for months and they kept giving me new dates that it would be available again, with the last one being Dec 2013, but e-mailed them again and got the following reply:

Good afternoon, we just received notification that the Butalbital (Floricet) has been discontinued. Please check with your pharmacist and/or doctor so they can determine what you best alternative should be. As always, feel free to reach out to me with any additional questions and/or concerns.

Happy holidays!!

Fioricet generic butalbital/apap/caffeine is the only rx I ever found to help migraines and tension headaches. Now it is supposedly going off the market. What ate people supposed to do to have better health when they take medicine away that helps? Soon they'll be nothing left.
