Hi...well fiorocet is highly addcitve and normally needs to be tapered to get off it....how much where you taking a day and for how long???? we have 2 members that no this drug well Vicky and mymayberry bot have detoxed off this drug they should be around to answer questions you may have so check back later
I just took the two tablets once a day, but I've only been taking them for a month and a half. When I got off my norco I got bad migraines so that is what they gave me.
Hi! First of all, fioricet is highly addictive because it contains a barbiturate. Your doctor should KNOW that!
With only two per day for a month you would think its not a problem but this stuff is insidious. It gets right in to enzymes, fat, etc and hangs on! You'll be okay, just give it a few days. Push your fluids and treat the systems you're feeling.
I don't blame the doctor for prescribing it for the headaches because it does work well but he is misinformed. I'm glad you stopped taking it once you felt better and if you need to take it again just taper off.
Well...I don't think this happened because you just detoxed from Norco. It may have happened anyway. Some people are just very sensitive to getting physically attached to meds and then suffer withdrawal. Even after a brief time. The ingredients in fioricet, mainly the butalbital, affect different brain receptors than Norco, as well.
Are you feeling at all better today? What's happening? Is it anxiety? nausea?
It can be similar to an opiate withdrawal with the major symptoms being anxiety and headache. The half life is longer than Norco so the withdrawal will come a bit later. Rebound headache is very common.
Try replacing the caffeine and apap. Try a little cocktail of coffee or tea with some Tylenol and Motrin together. Peppermint tea would be great for the nausea. Rest right now. This should pass quickly.
There is a possibility that this is not related to the fioricet at all. You may have picked up a virus recently. Let's see how you feel in 24 hours. I'm sorry you feel so rotten! You've been doing so well-
