Fioricet will relieve a head pain best if you take it as soon as the pain begins. If you get warning signs of a migraine, take this medicine as soon as you are sure that the migraine is coming. This may even stop the head pain from occurring. Lying down in a quiet, dark room for a while after taking the medicine also helps to relieve head pain.
