The only reason I am NOT satisfied is my own fault...I got soooo addicted several yrs ago & had to get help! It works like a miracle for migraines but be very careful to take it only when needed for pain.

I have suffered from severe, debilitating cervigenic migraines every few days, each lasting from 3 to 10 days. Little to no sleep at night. Tried it all; Cervical blocks, occipital blocks, facet injections, tramadol, amitriptylene, protriptylene,soma, halcion, skelaxin, flexeril, codiene, vicodin, physical therapy, deep tissue massage, bio feedback, surgery, etc. This is the only med that touchs them. It must be taken at the first hint of a migraine. In 15+ years I have never had an adiction problem.

This is the most successful medication (with absolutely NO side effects) I've taken for headaches. I have used it for over 20 years and trust it completely. There was never even a suggestion of dependence associated with this treatment.

this medication has helped me with my migrains. it is a good drug but only if you really need because it is a strong medication. this drug works so good for me that their are several days that go by that i do not have to take it and i like that beacause i hate getting migrains.

i am young, about 28 years old.i get tension headaches and severe migraines this medication works if i take it soon as i feel a migraine coming on, unlike other meds this one actually works for me, although it interacts with my other meds i do very well. but don't over do it if you don't need it don't take it. it gives you one hell of a rebound headache then a migraine like you can't even imagine, and thats what happened to me a couple of years ago, when my doc told me take them for prevention. now more new doc told me take when neccessary, it is a miracle.

I have been using Fioricet for 10 years for Migraines and have found it to be the best treatment for me. It can sometimes make me feel a little "stoned" but that passes within half an hour and I can move on with my day.

Since I have suffered migraines since the age of 6, I have been through a huge amount of treatments and medications to try to help with my migraines. After several stays overnight at the hospital hooked up to IV's being given the strong medication DHE(if anyone has ever gone through taking this I am sure you understand the horricfic experience I had with it), a few years ago I finally came into contact with a doctor who had enough sense to prescribe Fioricet for me...and ever since then it has been the number one thing to relieve my pain. I understand that doctors have to take precautions when prescribing this drug, but when there are only so many days supply there, and I have to make it last a month or so it can become hard at times, especially when I have the really really bad attacks...making sure that I have enough to relieve the migraine, and enough just incase I have another attack before I am able to get a refill...so that can be extemely frustrating at times! But, overall this has been the best thing I have found, and the list of meds I have been through consists of 3 long pages. Only being 22yrs old it can be scary having to deal with these consistant headaches, but I feel that as long as I am cautious with my use of this medication and use it as I am supposed to I will make it through, and those of you who suffer from migraines and feel the same, I strongly reccomend giving Fioricet a try.

I"ve had migraines since age 8,finally went to my DR. at age of 23 and this is what he gave me. It changed my life completly, and I was able to live a fun, full life... Then at age29-30 iwas blessed with a beutifully large baby boy.11.5oz !The headaches drasticly changed 4days after his birth. so I now have Chronic Daily migraine Headaches, and have pain 24//7 for 19yrs,now, Nothing else I have tried works to help the pain. I juggle life around my headaches.It has been a very useful med. for my needs.
