    Thanks for sharing the multitude of conditions that butalbital can help with (I didn’t realize it had so many applications!). However, I want to caution that it is not meant to be used long term or on a daily basis. There is a definite risk of having Medication Overuse Headache while on it and it can become habit forming. Most of the conditions listed above are short-term issues (like cramps, toothaches and dural puncture). So using this med for a short term can help get a person through that issue. But using it for chronic conditions is not often recommended.
