How many mg does butalbital have?
Asked by Reagan Zaborowski 6 months ago.
Butalbital and acetaminophen (byoo-TAL-bi-tal and a-seat-a-MIN-oh-fen) combination is a pain reliever and relaxant. It is used to treat tension headaches. Butalbital belongs to the group of medicines called barbiturates (bar-BI-tyoo-rates) . Barbiturates act in the central nervous system (CNS) to produce their effects. When you take butalbital for a long time, your body may get used to it so that larger amounts are needed to produce the same effects. This is called tolerance to the medicine. Also, butalbital may become habit-forming (causing mental or physical dependence) when it is used for a long time or in large doses. Physical dependence may lead to withdrawal side effects when you stop taking the medicine. In patients who get headaches, the first symptom of withdrawal may be new (rebound) headaches. Some butalbital and acetaminophen combinations also contain caffeine (KAF-een) . Caffeine may help to relieve headaches. However, caffeine can also cause physical dependence when it is used for a long time. This may lead to withdrawal (rebound) headaches when you stop taking it. Butalbital and acetaminophen combination may also be used for other kinds of headaches or other kinds of pain as determined by your doctor. Butalbital and acetaminophen combinations are available only with your doctor's prescription in the following dosage forms: Answered by Douglass Bastilla 6 months ago.

Can acetaminophen and butalbital get you high?
Asked by Ima Widhalm 6 months ago.
Acetaminophen and butalbital will NOT get you high. I'm not bullshitting you, if people just tell you off or lie to you without evidence, you will try it anyway, but I believe in saying KNOW to drugs, so take a look at the Wikipedia articles below. If a drug has ANY potential for abuse, it is always clearly mentioned in the article. Answered by Donnie Rotunno 6 months ago.

My friend took half his bottle of butalbital last night, went crazy, crazy gone, called me a thousand different names, screamed and screamed, punched holes in my walls, and beat the **** out of me and my mom. I had to get six staples in the back of my head. There was blood everywhere and it took at least four cops just to restrain him. Answered by Renaldo Muckelroy 6 months ago.

Can you take Butalbital with a muscle relaxer?
The Butalbital is just acetaminophen and caffeine. The muscle relaxer is generic for Flexeril.
Asked by Shantell Mokriski 6 months ago.
You are forgetting the barbiturate component of Butalbital. It is a muscle relaxer/pain killer that is way more powerful than flexaril. So, no you needn't take both. Answered by Haywood Stango 6 months ago.
Fioricet (butalbital/acetaminophen/caffeine) can be safely taken with Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine). However you should only use both if you are prescribed BOTH medications and you doctor intended for you to take both at once. However in general it is a somewhat redundant combination since butalbital is a muscle relaxant and the acetaminophen with caffeine provide analgesia. Again if you doctor wants you to take both it may be appropriate and it should be safe. Using both will likely have a synergistic sedation. Answered by Trudy Katzen 6 months ago.
If Butalbital is just acetaminophen and caffeine, then, yes, you can take it with Flexeril. But, in general, people should not rely on Yahoo! Answers for pharmaceutical advice. Talk to the pharmaicist who filled your prescription for the muscle relaxer. Answered by Larissa Moultry 6 months ago.

Mixing meds is it safe?
Bupap: butalbital 50mg, acetaminophen 650mg Dayquil: acetaminophen325mg, phenylephrinehci5mg
Asked by Germaine Rines 6 months ago.
Don't listen to Traya! In case you aren't certain ask a DOCTOR or Pharmacist What should I avoid while taking Bupap (acetaminophen and butalbital)? Acetaminophen and butalbital may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be alert. Ask a doctor or pharmacist before using any other cold, allergy, pain, or sleep medication. Acetaminophen (sometimes abbreviated as APAP) is contained in many combination medicines. Taking certain products together can cause you to get too much acetaminophen which can lead to a fatal overdose. Check the label to see if a medicine contains acetaminophen or APAP. Avoid drinking alcohol. It may increase your risk of liver damage while taking acetaminophen. Bupap (acetaminophen and butalbital) side effects Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Call your doctor at once if you have a serious side effect such as: fast or pounding heart rate, feeling short of breath; feeling like you might pass out; confusion, depression; feeling restless, excited, or agitated; seizure (convulsions); or nausea, stomach pain, loss of appetite, itching, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes). Less serious side effects include: headache, dizziness, drowsiness, shaky feeling; drunk feeling; vomiting, constipation; heartburn, trouble swallowing; numbness or tingly feeling; dry mouth; sweating or urinating more than usual; leg pain, tired muscles; stuffy nose, ear pain, ringing in your ears; or mild itching. This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

Your nurse is crazy. I'm no chemist, but that is way too many pills to be mixing for a headache. Usually 2 Ibuprofen will do the trick. Answered by Kum Grom 6 months ago.
butalbital, a barbituate. these days typically only prescribed for migraine victims(I'm one of them) and dayquil containing the tylenol and nasal decongestant.. mixing these 2 medications is perfectly fine. just know 4grams(4000mg) of tylenol is the most you should take in a day. staying below 2500mg is best, your liver will love you. Anyways, you're fine taking these. Answered by Luz Quevedo 6 months ago.

Asked by Dewayne Bouthot 6 months ago.
Butalbital-CAFF-APAP-COD stands for Butalbital (a barbiturate sedative) containing caffeine, acetaminophen (Tylenol), and codeine. Butalbital has been linked to birth defects if taken during the first trimester, Codeine is speculated to cause respiratory and cardiac defects and low birth weight, Butalbital and Codeine both can create withdraw symptoms in the baby if taken during the last two months of pregnancy (including seizures). Not much research has been conducted on the drug, and therefore the full effects during pregnancy are unknown...I personally wouldn't risk it unless the headache was unbearable. Maybe you should ask your ob/gyn for a safer alternative? Answered by Jacinda Ismael 6 months ago.
I wouldn't take anything a ER doc prescribes, not that they aren't smart, just sometimes they don't think about what they are giving a pregnant woman. They gave me CODEINE(not sure how to spell it) even though I was allergic, then put me and my baby into seziers. They have messed up with me too many times to trust them with my baby, so I would call your OB/GYN. Good Luck, and God Bless Answered by Jeanne Fosdick 6 months ago.
That sounds like Tylenol with codeine. I would not think the codeine would be appropriate while pregnant. Can you call or go back to that ER and confirm with the doctor on shift if that is something you should be doing, or call your regular doctor at home. Answered by Rosalina Carlos 6 months ago.
My friend got prescribed that when she was pregnant 2, but by her ob-gyn for migraine headaches. I have the same dr and trust her with my life. But if you're feeling uncertain check with your own dr before taking it, they'll be able to tell you more about it and it always helps to be able to ask all the questions you want.

If your friend is trying to avoid the tylenol component of the drug Fioricet...then he/she should NOT take any of the butalbital-APAP combination drugs. APAP (also known as acetaminophen or paracetamol) is the active ingredient in tylenol (and is found in Fioricet). Unfortunately, butalbital is not available by itself in the US. However, it is available in combination with aspirin and caffeine. One brand is called FIORINAL (other generics exist also). This product would avoid the tylenol part of the drug combination. If your friend would prefer to avoid the caffeine component of Fioricet, then there a number of caffeine-free butalbital-acetaminophen combinations available (one is called BUTAPAP in the US). Unfortunately, neither of the aforementioned products contain only butalbital. There used to be a butalbital-aspirin combination available in the US (called Axotal), but it was discontinued. Butalbital and acetaminophen combination is a pain reliever and relaxant. It is used to treat tension headaches. Butalbital belongs to the group of medicines called barbiturates. Barbiturates act in the central nervous system (CNS) to produce their effects. Answered by Tona Collari 6 months ago.

Asked by Taylor Boos 6 months ago.
I hate to say it, but ask your doctor for a prescription for something else. Butalbarbital and other long-acting barbiturates belong to the middle of the last century. No, they are not narcotics, but yes, they are potentially addictive. They have no place whatever in pain-killers. Answered by Sheba Guise 6 months ago.
My massage therapist advised me to therapeutic massage the subject around my neck once I get migraines. She additionally informed me to use an ice p.C.. One factor your boyfriend can do as a preventive is to take 400 mgs. Of B2 and 400 mgs. Of magnesium every day. That was once the very first thing my neurologist advised me to do when I went to look him. It really works. I get extra migraines once I do not take them also, Treximet is a very good migraine med.
