If you’ve been prescribed Fiorinal by a doctor, it’s important to consider the benefits and the risks associated with the drug before taking it. If you decide to take Fiorinal to treat your migraine headaches, be sure to take it only as prescribed by a physician.
As with all prescription medications, it is important that you understand all of the possible medical interactions that can occur. Fiorinal can interact with other medications and alcohol, potentially causing dangerous side effects.
When talking to your doctor about Fiorinal, be sure to disclose any drugs (prescription or otherwise) that you are currently using daily and/or recreationally. Doing something as normal as consuming alcohol can be very dangerous when taking Fiorinal. Be upfront with your full medical history and alcohol and drug use before agreeing to take this medication.
Fiorinal consists of a mix of caffeine, aspirin and butalbital. Fiorinal is intended to be taken at the onset of a headache and then repeated every four hours as needed. It’s important not to exceed the proper dosage in a 24-hour time period. Patients taking this drug should also be sure to eat and drink enough water. Common side effects of Fiorinal include nausea, gas, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness and drowsiness.

Alcohol can negate the effects of Fiorinal and increase the chances of rare side effects. Those side effects can include mood swings, fainting, ringing in the ears, frequent urination or easy bruising.
When taking Fiorinal, it is also important not to take any blood thinners or other pain medications. Fiorinal can affect how these drugs are absorbed by the body and cause organ failure, damage or injury.
If you take Fiorinal, abstain from drinking alcohol or using other drugs. Drinking alcohol with Fiorinal can result in dangerous interactions and cause unwanted side effects like bleeding in the stomach.
