Fiorinal Tablets

Updated
Ann Says:

I have tried several drugstores for the fiorinal tablet and cannot find them. I have taken them for several years, the capsule is not effective and neither is the fiorcet. Where can I find the fiorinal (butalbital-Asa-caffeine tablets, 50-325-40)

Hello, Ann! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having.

However, from what was recently reported, it appears that they were removed from the market. I haven't been able to discover why, it may just have been due to lack of sales.

The only suggestion I can really give you is that you talk to your doctor to see if there is an alternative that you can try.

Does anyone else have any other ideas?

Reported Where? I take the Brand Fiorinal with Codeine #3 and have not been able to get script filled for couple months now. I contacted Watson in early November and they stated Brand (Fiorinal with Codeine #3 was not being discontinued, please let me know where you heard a report of this change.

can't another company buy the formula for fiorinal pills w/aspirin and make it for us? I need it as I get headaches from food, drop in baro pressure, everything. Watson/Activis didn't even tell us they were stopping them. Can't we get them from another Pharmaceutical Company?

What Walmart and what State ??? I can't find them anywhere! The Fioricet do not work because it has Tylenol (acetaminophan) and the Fiorinol Capsules don't work for me and they are much more expensive!!!

I had no idea about Fiorinal with Codeine....
The company may have stopped making that.

I just now that here in the Northeast you can get the generic of Fiorinal ASA, But., etc.

Ask or call the local pharmacists!!!

Oh my gosh, I have used fiorinal for over 35 years and just tried to get a refill and was told they are no longer available. i have tried several meds and this works best. I can't believe this. I hate to have to starting trying new meds again.

The fiorinol with tylenol doesn't work the same as with aspirin....but what really irks me is they say the acetaminophen is so bad for the liver yet everything RX including the over the counter meds include it..... Aspirin works so much better...so westward plz start producing it!!! It's all about greed and money I think !!!

I cannot find them. Please post when you can find that in a tablet. Nothing else works for migraine and the capsules were an excuse to raise the price

CAN'T BELIEVE IN THIS DAY AND AGE THAT YOU CAN'T GET FIORINAL EVEN IF YOU ARE WILLING TO PAY HIGHER FOR IT. CAN'T GET THE FIORINAL WHITE TABLETS WITH THE ASPIRIN AND THEY ARE THE ONLY ONES THAT WORK.

Did you Fiorinal is a controlled drug now or has been for a few yrs.?
It also has a formula( I use the original/regular pill) but it also comes with codeine! I'd be plugged forever!
Also it comes in tabs; which I only use; they last longer and caps.; don't get me started on pills in caps.!
Anyways, with a written script, I got mine today; NYState but ; new Nurse Practitioner; forget to mention or ask my preference and I forgot to look and when I got home- saw that I was given the caps.! By law, they would not take them back and I hate caps; they don't hold up that long...................

INNew York State you can still get generic Fiorinal tabs or caps.
They need a written script and if you get the one w/codeine in it; it might be more difficult; paper wise for the dr writing it.

Valium is a NO No in NYSte! can't get it to save ones' back! But FL., TX. and NV.- no problem!

Maura Says:

The pharmacy distributors now- will only sell the tabs to the pharmacies without the ASPIRIN ingredient (too much stomach bleeding...) and have substituted instead of Aspirin- tylenol! Yes, it's available in NY State but be CAREFUL- what you ask for.......

I prefer the long lasting tabs vs. the capsules.

Good Luck!

Is there ANY place in the United States or Canada where you can still get Butalbital/Aspirin/Caffeine TABLETS, not capsules? I cut the pill in half per dose and cannot do that with capsules.

I also don't understand why they can't make them in tablets. I don't know about anyone else, but I swear there are no real ingredients in the capsules. I have opened serveral up just to see if there was something in there. I took two in the middle of the night once (normally I won't even take one because it would keep me awake) the next thing I know, I am waking up, headache still there, so I'm thinking there isn't any caffeine in it either? I have had it refilled several times, thinking maybe I got a bad batch. But they were all the same. There is something very wrong going on with that. How has no one caught on that someone or some place is ripping everyone off with phony drugs.
