Is this a narcotic?

Is Fioricet a narcotic? Tuesday night while picking dd up from hula hoop class at the rec center, I didn't see the puddle of water on their indoor stairs that are concrete and painted. I slipped and fell. I hurt my tailbone. Its bruised. And because I tried to reach for the railing on the way down to break my fall, I injured my shoulder and lower back. My shoulder hurts the worst now. The muscles are getting very tight and itit's triggered a 2 day hemiplegic migraine. Nothing was helping so i went to urgent care.

They xrayed my shoulder. Nothing is broken, but I did something muscular to it. So they gave me fluids and Flexeril for my muscle spasms (let me say that stuff knocked me the frick out!) He tried giving me multiple migraine meds, but nothing was working. He finally said maybe Fieoricet would help. But that he doesn't like giving narcotics for migraines. I didn't think Fioricet was a narcotic? I had to take it while pregnant with dd for my migraines. It was explained to me then that it was a medicine for migraines and cluster/tension headaches.

So he called my primary to see what she wanted him to do. She told him to give me the Fioricet and to have me drink mountain dew. Well what do ya know, it worked! I finally have some relief. The only think the fioricet does to me is make me super sleepy. Not a high feeling or anything. And I don't want to be taking narcotics if it is one anyways.

So what is it? Lol

It's not. It's Tylenol, caffeine, and a barbiturate.

I am very confused because my OB said it wasn't one, and the doc today said it was. It says its a barbituate...I have no clue what that is.
