Other names for Fiorinal
Fiorinal is a combo medication containing many of the same ingredients that are found in Butalbital. As such, Fiorinal can cause dependence and addiction in much the same way that Butalbital can. The process of building tolerance to the medication is largely the same and results in similar dependency as the user becomes physiologically inclined to placing Fiorinal at the top of their hierarchy of priorities.

Fortabs constitute one of many ways that the Butalbital combination can be prepared. In general, this is the combination of Butalbital itself with paracetamol and caffeine. The paracetamol is Aspirin, which acts as a pain reliever and also reduces inflammation and fever. Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant, and Butalbital is a barbiturate that relaxes muscle contractions, which is typically necessary for tension headaches. In tandem, these effects are a sometimes superior treatment for tension headaches than Butalbital by itself.
Fiorinal doses come in the form of capsules, which are typically presented as two-tone green spansules. The two halves of a spansule can be cleaved apart to release the contents thereof. These pills are taken orally.

Mixing Fiorinal with alcohol, benzodiazepines or other CNS depressants greatly enhances intoxication and increases respiratory depression. These combinations also increase the likelihood of liver toxicity, especially because of the presence of Aspirin.
This drug is especially dangerous to anyone already prescribed opioid medication, sleeping pills, muscle relaxers, or medication for anxiety or seizures.
