It is also available as a generic medicine which means it is a drug that contains the same chemical substance as a drug protected by chemical patents. And it is allowed for sale after the patents on original drug expire. It is approved for medical use in the United States in 1984.


It is one of the most prescribed medications in the USA. Over 2 million subscriptions of this drug were found in surveys done in 2016, whereas it is banned in several European countries.


Effectiveness of Fioricet:

The effect of acetaminophen starts within thirty to sixty minutes of consuming the medicine.

Butalbital is absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. It produces a muscle-relaxing effect and sedative effect in one to two hours. Butalbital’s average half-life is of around 35 hours, which means it lasts for a long time in the body, and repeated doses have a cumulative effect.


Caffeine present in the drug is metabolized in the liver to other active substances and has a short half-life of three to seven hours.
