Hydrocodone is the only drug that causes me to have itchy skin all over. I’m not the only one who experiences this side effect, either. My best friend and my mother both have told me that after taking it, they can’t stop scratching.
It’s the kind of itch you can’t get to with your nails. It is continuous and only fades as the drug wears off.
I only take this drug when I am in extreme pain, and I’ve discovered that if I cut the pill in half, I won’t experience any internal itching. Half a pill is usually enough to take care of my pain, because my body is really easily affected by medication.
