why are some drs afraid to perscribe Fioricet?

One Dr I was going to said one 2 times a day, I have to take 2 to get rid of a headache. Then if i run out to soon they won't give me anymore . So then I am out to soon. Even though I have told them 1 doesn't work good enough. I have even gone to the same office and seen a different dr who said they wouldn't give them to me. What is the big deal ? If you finally find something that works stay with it. ## Lora, I understand completely. I think they are concerned about rebound headaches if they are taken too often. Also, some neurologists don't like to prescribe anything for pain, and just rely on preventatives and triptans. I had my best quality of life with migraine with my first neurologist who prescribed Inderal as a preventative and 100 Fioricet/month. I never abused ...

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...

What does CP mean But / Acetaminophen / Caff

I have BUT/ACETAMINOPHEN/CAFF 50-300-40 CP. What do the last two letters "CP" mean? Does it mean capsules? ## Hello Grace, Typically the abbreviation CP in the medical field refers to cerebral palsy but in reference to a pill itself it's fairly safe to assume that it could stand for capsule. Each company and pharmacy have their own way of labeling things so if it's truly of great concern to you simply ask your pharmacy or the manufacturer who labeled the bottle. ## The ingredients listed in your abbreviation correspond with: Butalbital 50 mg / Acetaminophen 300 mg / Caffeine 40 mg I am inclined to agree with everyone on here that the "CP" could likely stand for Capsule ... However, there is a variation of this med that also contains Codeine Phosphate 30 mg in add...

44334 white pill

Does anyone know what this pill is? White oblong pill with the number 44334 imprinted. ## Oblong, white caplet pill approximately 3/4 inches long is generic EXCEDRIN. In my case, Walgreens brand Extra Strength Headache Relief. (NDC: 0363-0443) This pill contains: - 250 mg Acetaminophen - 250 mg Asprin - 65 mg Caffeine Inactive ingredients (will vary by manufacturer) - Crospovidone - Hypromelloses - Cellulose, Microcrystalline - Polyethylene Glycols - Povidones - Propylene Glycol - Sodium Lauryl Sulfate - Sodium Starch Glycolate Type a Potato - Stearic Acid ## It is the same imprint on Wal Mart's generic Excedrin in the oval pill also. ## yes the pill does have 44 334 on it. I'm just concerned with it interacting with Zpak. ## That white capsule with 44334 on it is also sold at W...

Migraine help

After our 20th meeting with a different neurologist yesterday we came away with absolutely no treatment. The only thing that helps my son with his migraine is butalbital with codeine. The neurologist is no longer prescribing this and suggests that he take some aspirin. Last week he had the worst migraine he had ever had in his life and had fallen several times, was slurring his words and could not speak. I found him on the floor on the back porch where he had been for about 2 hours. The doctor sent him to get Act. Nothing showed such as a bleed or an aneurysm. I don't know where else to turn for him. The neurologist yesterday said to go to Johns Hopkins or the Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia. At that time he asked us to leave at 9. To return or not to return. He said he was not t...

Fiorinal capsules not working anymore

I decided to start a new thread because although the capsules never worked as quickly as the tablets, they did work by 20 - 30 minutes later. As of July, 2017 they don't. Has anyone else noticed this recently? I've asked my pharmacist about getting a different manufacturer but they can't. Does anyone have any information about another change in the formula? Boy do I wish we could do something to bring back the tablets. ## What are the markings on the capsules you've been receiving? I am sorry, but I need this additional information in order to research this to help you. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, drowsiness, and sedation. Several others have complained about ...

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...

Fiorinal with Codeine #3

I've been taking 4 capsules per day for migraines and pain control. I've been taking this drug for 30 years and it seems like the only thing that works yet allows me to be productive. Since the unavailability issues about a year ago, it seems like they are now not as effective. It feels like they don't have the same amount of active ingredient. I agree that Watson was the best generic I tried. Does anybody know which manufacturer may be better to get from? I find I've been needing more like 6 per day and still am not getting the same relief. Any ideas? ## Hello, Diana! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. At this point, it might be better to just try a different medication. So far, no one who's posted has had good results from any of t...

Large round white pills from mexico with Raam on one side

I found large round white pills with Raam on one side and scored on the other side. Please help me identify this pill. I know it came from Mexico. Found it in my daughter's suitcase. ## These are Sumatrapitan, used to treat migraines. I purchased a bottle of them in Mexico as well. Work great. ## Just got back from Ensenada on a cruise. I purchased what said on the box 2mg alprazolam. They are round and white pills that say RAAM on one side and nothing on the back. No slit to cut in half or in fourths. I’m used to taking .5mg-1mg for anxiety so I just took a piece when I felt a panic attack coming along. Definitely calmed me down and I eventually went to sleep. However, I tried searching for these online to make sure they were Xanax and haven’t found one thread or pictur...

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...

Midrin cap

red and white capsule with; ep1 and 101 printed on both the red and white portions of the capsule. ## Midrin is a vasoconstrictor (shrinks the blood vessels) specifically in the brain for migraines, but has allegedly been blamed for cardiovascular problems, and even the generic form is not available to legal drugstores. I've sworn by this medicine for my migraines the past 30 years, and I'm pretty frightened by this news, because I carry a bottle with me everywhere I go, just in case a migraine strikes. The nasal and under-the-tongue migraine meds prescribed in the last 10 years give me heart palpitations, shortness of breath, etc., but the Midrin did NOT, so I've got to find something, or decide if this life is worth living without a medication that has helped me all of the...

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. My sub doctor is...

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...

Midrin where can I get it

I have been taking Midrin for the past 10 years for migraines because I don't get any side effects from it and it works really well. Now all of a sudden the pharmacies in my area (3 of them) are saying that they can't get any or it is on backorders for the past 3 months. Do they still make it? I tried a different medication and it makes me really dissy so I really need to know how to get the Midrin. How can I get a presecription filled and where even in the mail would be ok. ## IVE BEEN TAKEN MIDRIN FOR 8YRS ALSO NOW THEY TELL ME LAST MONTH NO MORE NOT AVALIBLE BULL, CAN ANYONE HELP ME ON THIS OR A GENERIC IVE BEEN SUFFERING FROM MIGRANES FOR 35 YRS MIDRIN WORKS IF YOU KNOW OF SOMETHING ELSE OR BETTER LET ME KNOW THXS ## I am sorry to have to inform you of this, but that is corr...
