No. Fiorcet is a combination of a barbituate call butalbital, acetaminophen and caffeine.  Its mainly used for tension and muscle contraction headaches and migraines. It is not a narcotic but it can be habit forming (although less so than with narcotics) and you can get withdrawl symptoms when you go off the drug if you have been on it for long periods. Not everyone, of course, experiences addiction or withdrawl symptoms.
