Most of all, patients have significantly lower risks of relapse. Recovering from addiction is a challenging path, but it is totally possible with the help of the right persons and institution.
A level of tolerance can be developed for both drugs. The average Fioricet addict, as does any barbiturate addict, takes about 1500mg of the drug to achieve the same level of satisfaction. When it happens, the person will need higher doses to achieve the same results as before.
Fioricet is a combination medication containing the short-acting barbiturate, butalbital, acetaminophen (Tylenol), and caffeine. The medication is also extremely dangerous in overdose, because butalbital can stop someone's breathing and the acetaminophen (Tylenol) in the medication is very toxic to the liver in high doses. This leads to habituation, and regular use of barbiturates produces a physical dependence that requires detoxification under medical supervision, because the untreated withdrawal syndrome from barbiturates is potentially fatal.
I have been addicted to fioricet without codeine for over 6 year s, i take just about 6 or 7 a day, i take about 3 every morning to get me going, because i feel it is.
