I get severe headaches/ migraines that last for days with NO relief unless I took the blue pills fiorecet with butalbital caffeine AND codiene. After years of taking it and never getting addicted. I never even asked for an increase in strength or frequency! My stupid Dr. decides to stop it and give me massive doses of ibuprophen (advil) saying it would work the same, I reminded him that I had started seeing HIM because nothing otc worked! He said I was having rebound headaches from them. Well, I found out that for me, it was the butalbital that caused the rebound headaches not the codiene which was the only part of that pill combo besides the caffeine that helped. I now have a prescription for straight codiene (codeine sulfate) and it WORKS! I take 1 I don't get drowsy and it takes my horrid migraine away for a few hours. I don't understand why they don't just prescribe what works, not pills with a bunch of other things in it you don't need.

I'm very sorry about the problem you had.

However, due to new regulations that were put in place last year, doctors have to very careful about what they prescribe and are supposed to try to get as many people as possible off of narcotic opiates. They're really trying to curb improper and over prescribing.

This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

However, I'm glad that you were able to get back on the medication that helps you. Many people are having issues getting their doctors to prescribe what works.

Is there anything else I can help with?
