Opoid Itchies

Recommended Posts

When I broke my leg a few months back, I was prescribed several opoids, which I took sparingly. I started to notice that my skin was incredibly itchy (especially underneath my cast). I figured it was dry, so I changed soap and got some lotion. Then I noticed that there were hives in the effected areas - so I recognized that it was something different. I did some research and discovered that this can be a side effect of the opoids - so that was the end of me taking those. That was about 2 weeks ago. Here is what I am wondering - I am getting a little sick of talking anti histimine every day to avoid having "itch my skin off" attacks on various parts of my body. I have not taken the opoids for several weeks now.

Has anyone ever experienced this side effect and if so, how long can I expect it to last?
