I have tried fioricet for my headaches. It takes the edge of the intense pain but is better if combined with some other drug. Sometimes I combine it with maxalt. Relpax is also good along with it. I may have to take about 2 fioricet every 4 hours. Doctors are also wary of prescribing more of this drug due to its addictive qualities. Any way Iím thankful it provides some sort of relief at least.
