Fioricet Withdrawal and Detox

Fioricet Withdrawal and DetoxIf you develop a case of Fioricet dependence or addiction, you can expect to go through a state of withdrawal if you stop taking the medication or taper off your consumption at a rapid pace. All forms of barbiturate withdrawal1 can lead to the onset of symptoms such as:

  • Cramping in your stomach or abdomen
  • Sleeplessness
  • Nausea accompanied by vomiting
  • An unusually anxious or restless mental state
  • Sensory hallucinations
  • Suicidal thinking

A high percentage of people withdrawing from a barbiturate medication also develop more severe symptoms. For example, as many as three-quarters of all those affected will experience at least one seizure. As well as a high body temperature. And a delirious state of mind similar to that found in people going through severe alcohol withdrawal. In as many as two-thirds of all cases of delirium, symptoms remain in effect for days.

No one should ever attempt to withdraw from Fioricet or any other barbiturate medication without comprehensive medical oversight. If you try to make it through withdrawal on your own, you run the risk of developing extreme complications that include dangerously high body temperature and heart failure. In a worst-case scenario, you will die from these complications. Even if you manage to survive withdrawal, you have a strong chance of returning to your old pattern of medication misuse. And once you relapse, a dose of Fioricet that you could tolerate in the past may be more than enough to trigger an overdose today.

Medically Supervised Detoxification

The only safe option for Fioricet withdrawal is a medically supervised detoxification2 program staffed with well-trained, experienced personnel. In fact, experts recommend that most people go through barbiturate detox in a hospital setting. This type of setting will help ensure that you avoid major setbacks as your medication levels undergo a gradual decrease. If you complete this process, the end result is a level of physical and mental steadiness that helps you cope with the ups and downs of active substance treatment.
