Customer Question

I'm taking 59mg Tramadol every 4-6 hrs. I just took my 2nd dose and am beginning to itch (a side effect I've experienced before with (tramadol). I'm pretty sure in the past (I was in the hospital and it was all a big blur) I was given benedrayl to help with the itching. Just wanting to double check. Just an FYI: I am at home on recommended bed rest, so I'm not going anywhere anytime soon.
JA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: No RX allergies and I take 120mg of Tricor once daily.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No ma'am. Just trying to get the itching under control so I can get some rest 😁

Myself Dr Josh- and I’m happy to help with your question today.

It would resolve itching symptoms.

You should dress in lightweight, loose-fitting clothing. Cotton fabric is best for your condition. You should keep your skin moisturized.

You should avoid Irritants like- tobacco smoke, chemicals, weather (hot and humid or cold and dry conditions) and air conditioning or overheating.
