At 1am, I decided to take 3 Fiorecet (50mg Butalbital, 300mg tylenol, 40mg caffeine). I am at work, and really have nothing better to do. I have taken this drug a few times before, and I quite enjoy it.

At T-15 minutes, after taking on an empty stomach, I begin to feel the effects of the caffeine. Heightened sense of alertness, increased pulse and blood pressure, higher brain function. At this time, I still feel sober.

T-30 minutes since ingestion: just beginning to feel the effects of the butalbital. A slight inebriation, as if I took a couple shots of liquor. It is a different feeling than alcohol though, it feels "cleaner", if that makes sense.

T-45 minutes: a minor euphoria sets in. Walking around is enjoyable. I feel the need to talk, as if I just did a few lines of cocaine. Interacting with co-workers is less of a burden than usual. I have to actively hide the stupid smile that's on my face now.

T-1 hour, and I decided to take the last 2 pills that I have. I kind of felt like taking them now and getting much higher, rather than taking them both a few days later and not getting very high at all. At this point, there is now 250mg of butalbital in my blood stream. Sweet, sweet barbiturates. Still feeling about the same, but I'm sure once this second dose kicks in I'll feel even better.

T-1 hour and 30 minutes. I'm on top of the world. I went out to my car for my lunch break, and god damn does music sound incredible. The euphoria has increased, if only slightly. Really, I just feel super duper mellow. I can see how it would be easy to make stupid mistakes on this drug. Break is over now, and I dont want to leave my little kingdom in my car, but I have to get back to work. One more cigarette. The nicotine feels more pronounced on this drug, as if I'm smoking several cigarettes at once. It's a good feeling.

T- 2 hours and I'm still going strong. The caffeine is keeping me buzzing like a good little worker bee, and the butalbital makes everything seem like the greatest thing since sliced bread. Move these heavy boxes across the hall? You betcha. File this paperwork? Hell yeah, lemme at it. Call this customer and let him cuss you out for his shipment being late? Hell, I'm gonna make him my best friend. (And I did. The guy was really nice about it.)

T-2 hours and 30 minutes. Not much to update, still rolling strong. People are complimenting me on my hard work. Customers are telling me how happy they are with my customer service. I'm feeling great. I really wish I could take this drug every day, but I stress this, do NOT take this drug every day. I would build up a tolerance and it would fuck me up. It's not worth it. Have fun every once in a while with it, but dont get hooked.

T- 3 hours and 45 minutes. Work is almost over. The last hour has gone by so fast, and I hadnt needed to do much. I still enjoyed the time though, because being high on Butalbital makes everything great. Cant wait to go home and enjoy the last of this high alone in my apartment.

T-5 hours. Got home and put on the telly. I'm actually feeling even better now that I'm out of work. The euphoria is really setting in. I thought about having a beer, but this fiorecet has a lot of tylenol in it. Now I'm just watching some game of thrones and I am glued to this screen. I've seen this episode a thousand times before, but I really couldnt take my eyes off it. I was so focused on it, and as the music swelled, so did my euphoria.

T-7 hours. After a couple episodes of game of thrones, I'm beat. It's time for me to hit the hay. Despite all the caffeine in this drug, it's actually super easy to sleep on it. I'll probably pass out not 10 minutes after lying down. Closing my eyes, I can feel the drug really pulling me down. It's a good, dizzying feeling. Anyway, time for me to go.

To summarize, butalbital is a great drug. Tons of fun, especially as fiorecet with the caffeine in it. However, it is very addicting. I wouldnt take it more than twice a month. In my opinion, it's better than cocaine.
