Yes, they said ibuprofen is best for pain management, however at this point of time... ibuprofen doesn't help. I search for an alternative medicines and some are suggesting to intake butalbital / fioricet. My question is is this effective to ease the pain, and how much does this capsule cost? I found medsdelivery247 offering this kind of drugs but I'm a bit hesitant if I am going buy this thing.

Hoping to be enlighten with this stuff.

    can answer completely.

    The information I read up on about Fioricet, there was never a mention if it is more effective than Iibuprofen.

    But I would still always be concerned about the amount of acetaminophen and caffeine. The major ingredient, butalbital seems to be considered as a medication for headaches and minor pain. The fact Butalbital is a physically and psychologically addictive barbiturate would also be of concern , especially since it is classified as a Schedule III drug. (and exempt from prescriptions)
