    Apr 7, 2010 1 Answer – Posted in: fioricet, fioricet with codeine – Answer: If you could give more info? I don’t have insurance and ive been on the regular fioricet for a while. Does anyone know how much it costs without insurance?

    You pretty much know the answer already. She is obviously exceeding the recommended dose, which is 1-2 tablets every four hours as needed, not exceeding 6 tablets in a 24 hour period. Note that Fioricet (and some other pain medications) are implicated as causing repeat headaches with over-use. Fioricet also contains acetaminophen that in high doses can damage multiple organs, especially the liver and kidney. Physical dependency is based on how long shes been taking the pills. When physical dependence has developed, withdrawal symptoms will occur if she suddenly stops the medication. Withdrawal symptoms include: drug craving, runny nose, yawning, sweating, insomnia, weakness, stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle spasms, chills, irritability and pain. My suggestion would be informing her that too much of the medication will make her headaches worse, and advise her of the dangers of the OTHER ingredients in the medication that causes permanent damage. Dont cut her completely off the medication, but reduce her dose to 1-2 pills every four hours, as suggested on the label. If shes not willing or able to do it herself, you may have to play parent for a bit. There are plenty of quick fixes for opiate withdrawal symptoms that will make the tapered dose easier.As far as experience goes, opiate addiction can sneak right up on you if you dont catch it quick. I was prescribed OxyContin for a back injury… and before you know it youre in the hospital unconscious with depressed lungs then off to rehab.
