Is Fioricet a schedule III controlled substance? It contains Butalbitalwhichis a schedule III.
I guess thisisdumb question... maybe.

It apparently is. I'm not going to worry about it. I worked at a prison and they allowed it there without a lot of problem.

Butalbital and Butalbital/Aspirin are listed as schedule III. No specific mention is made of Butalbital APAP (Fioricet)
There is also an exempted prescription drugs list at:
http://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/schedules/exempt/exempt_li (http://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/schedules/exempt/exempt_list.htm) st.htm
Many forms of Butalbital/APAP are listed, but I am not really sure what it all means.

Redex, so Fioricet ins't a controlled substance?

*Edit* *reply to Redex's post * Sure is smileys/smiley4.gifMaybe there is hope for OP's after all. Think Uncle Sam will get a hard on for schedule IV's, too?

It is on many pharmacy regs documents as exempt. Also, on drugstore.com all of the other butalbital combos bring up the 'controlled drug, special ordering instructions apply' message, except for the APAP combos.
My guess is that it is not.

Laura, Do you know that for a fact? Others here don't agree.
November 4th, 2003, 02:17 PM
I use Dr. Sachs login at www.PDR.net (http://www.PDR.net)The Physicians Desk Reference,it is definetly a controled III.
Why don't you call a pharmacy?
November 4th, 2003, 03:02 PM
Are you sure it's not a state-by-state thing? Federally CIII, though.
November 4th, 2003, 03:17 PM
Butalbital and Butalbital/ASA are schedule III.
Maybe the liver destroying properties of the APAP put Fioricet on the exempt list federally.
See status of Fioricet:

Scroll down on the left under Controled Substances.

This is how I read it:
Fioricet contains the same active ingredient (butalbital) as Fiorinal with aspirin, which is a Schedule III controlled substance. However, since Fioricet is a Schedule VI (6 for those of you who didn't take Latin in High School) controlled substance, its addictive potential may be overlooked. In addition, physician offices often maintain samples of both Fioricet and tramadol, allowing for easy access to the medication. smileys/smiley16.gif

Laura, Fioricet isn't on the controlled substances list you are referring to.

Well e-scripts pulled it so it must be a contolled substance. Thanks to all the OPs who replied smileys/smiley24.gif
November 7th, 2003, 12:16 PM
The Fioricet that OP's sell is not controlled. Fioricet w/codeine is. This is what I use when I have a controlled/non-controlleds ?:
Do a Ctrl F and type Fioricet.
November 13th, 2003, 06:26 AM
Fioricet that you sell is not a controlled substance. Fioricet III (w/codeine) is a CS, and soare Fiorinal and Fiorinal w/codeine. At least in my pharmacies...
