Is Fioricet An Opiate

i ahve to drop for a new job and i take fioricet

Answer

Hi cheree,

No, fioricet is not an opiate, but a pain reliever and relaxant containing butalbital and acetaminophen. Butalbital belongs to a group of drugs called barbiturates.

Opiates, are narcotic analgesics (pain relievers) and include methadone, oxycontin and morphine.

I hope that helps.
