changed pain meds...starting to itch already

I posted the other day regarding hives from percocet...on and off, but bad at times. Today the doctor switched me to ultracet. After hanging up, I remembered having trouble in the past with it...I "think" stomach pains. I took the first one at 4:30 nearly two hours ago and I am starting to itch! No hives yet though. I have liquid benedryl on hand just in case. This is so frustrating! Does anyone else have trouble tolerating meds...if so what did you do?


  • I don't really have any trouble tolerating meds myself, but I was just wondering if you have ever had a reaction to just plain tylenol?

    Since percocet and ultracet, both contain tylenol, maybe that could be the cause of your reaction? Some times people form spontaneous allergies for no specific reason--maybe this might have happened with you?

    Just a thought.

    I hope you can find something that doesn't cause an allergic reaction.

    By the way, is ultracet strong enough for your pain? I found that tramadol didn't touch my pain at all, felt like I just took a tylenol. Percocet, on the other hand, is a much stronger medication.
  • percocet worked well for me...will see about the tramadol. I do think one time last week when I just took x-tra strength tylenol I got hives..but thought because i still had percocet in my system.I am writing everything down to help keep track. I am very frustrated. thanks.
