I just got my wisdom teeth out a few weeks ago and was prescribed percocet, which I had never taken before. And now I know I can't ever take it again, unless I want to be scratching for hours on end. At the follow up visit I got a refill of vicodin thinking that wouldnt make me itch as much, but of course they do now too. I had taken vicodin (a lower dose though the 5/500 kind) before and never got itchy. Now with this 7.5/750 dose it's just as bad as the percocet.
My question is...why am I soooooo itchy (I've tried taking benedryl with the pills and it doesnt really help) AND, if i ever need pain pills again...what could I take that would actually work ?
