I get Tension Headaches and occasionally a Migraine headache. This medication works very well for me. I take it sparingly and always get relief. I do not notice any side effects.

I've used Fioricet for over 20 years for occasional tension headaches, since I am to avoid aspirin or NASIDS due to ulcer. I've been very careful to keep track of how often I use it, and find that sometimes a 1/2 tablet does the trick for mild headaches. I check annually with my doctors and they seem to agree that limiting to no more than 10 tablets a month is relatively safe. Bottom line is keep track of your usage and check regularly with your doctor, particularly if you find your dosage need increasing.

I have been taking this medication for 10+ years on an as needed basis. I LOVE it! If I feel a tension headache coming on and take 2 tablets - it is gone within 30 minutes. I don't get these headaches very often but when I do this medication works wonders. :)

Had a concussion and had horrible headaches that would wake me up in the middle of the night. Nothing would take the pain away. The doctor prescribed Fioricet and it worked. The only side effect I experienced was a bit of dry mouth. Other than that it is great!

I have been taking this drug for years with much success. As of today, the PA that I have been seeing will no longer prescribe them, as he claims this medication is causing the headaches. I asked what other drug could I take, his response was nothing.
