Fioricet and Codeine

Some formulas for Fioricet contain codeine, a potent and addictive opioid. Codeine enhances the pain-relieving effects of Fioricet, but it also poses additional risks for overdose and addiction. Fioricet is the property of the pharmaceutical firm Actavis, one of three generic drug companies which contributed substantially to the Opioid Epidemic, according to DEA data.

Patients who receive prescriptions for Fioricet should know whether their prescription contains codeine. If codeine is an ingredient in your Fioricet prescription, consider asking for opioid-free medication. If a person misuses Fioricet with codeine, either accidentally or intentionally, they might suffer lethal respiratory depression. Shallow breathing, a slow heart rate, extreme drowsiness, chest pain, and intense confusion are some of the symptoms of overdose on Fioricet with codeine.
