Yes.. please, please don't ever take fioricet (with or without the codiene because either one is extremely addictive). It's barbiturate, acetaminophen(tylenol), and caffine mixed together. The barbituate is very dangerious, not only because it is highly addictive, but also because relatively small amounts can stop your breathing. The acetaminophen is very bad for your liver if taken daily, even at moderate dosages.
I have been a fiorcet addict for 25 years. It has destroyed my life. I have 1 to 2 years sober off and on, but eventually return once again to this terriable addiction. Its like being an alcoholic, but only being a slave to a pill bottle instead of booze. If you google "fioricet and addiction" you can find many more stories like mine.
