I was recently prescribed Fioricet tabs in place of lortabs for my headaches. ( OK, maybe the headaches weren't really that bad, but I wanted to have a little something to help relax & bring a pleasant mood). I had read a little about butalbital. Fioricet combines APAP & caffiene.
I took 2 50 MG tabs at 10:15 AM There was a fairly rapid onset for the effects, about 20-30 min. Unlike most opioids which are closer to 60 min for me. The feeling was calm, relaxing, & mellow. Like taking a couple xanax or valium. But the caffiene helped keep me alert, so I was able to enjoy the soothing, calm feeling brought on by this marvelous drug.
Now then, the effects were quite long lasting for me, about 5-6 hours. That was a nice surprise, since most opioids last no more than 2 hours.
This is a great drug for headache. Very mild, but effective. I also combined a dose of fioricet with 2 MG of clonezepam.... that was a nice high... but also acted as a mind eraser, & made me sleep a bit too soundly at night.
Overall, My opinion of butalbital (fioricet) is 8 out of 10
