Fiorinal w/codeine?

I just got back from the Dentist, I'm having some major issues with my TMJ/headaches/neck pain.  He prescribed me Fiorinal w/codeine, because I told him I did not want to be on Vicodin long term.  I don't want to go down that road again.  Can anyone tell me if they have an experience with this medication?  I'm a little worried because it has a barbituate in it, and I've never taken anything like that...

Any help is appreciated!

Coedine is coedine. Coedine is an opiate. Welcome to the forum.

well on one hand codeine is a weaker opiate than vicodin. I am assuming you only plan to take these as needed.. my mom's hubby takes these for neck pain. I took one once and it did not give me the buzz vicodin does.  I also have TMJ and I find my chiropractor and massage therapist  help me ALOT...  Its worth a shot.. also when I was able to go to acupucture that also helped..

I've had some personal experience with vics, lortabs,and fiornal with codeine.  I personally find that the fiornal with codeine does not give me a "buzz" like the hydros yet still helps with the pain.  In that regard, I don't believe it's as "addictive" (at least for me).
