My surgery on Monday was successful. I was discharged on Tuesday. But my pain meds were not strong enough. I started with a prescription for 50 mg of Ultram. I was in agony. (Also the PT at the hospital had me do lots with my new knee here.) I called the doctor Wednesday and the Ultram dose is now 100 mg. At night I take diphenhydramine with Norco. In the past, I’ve had itchiness when taking these type of meds. The first two nights were great, but last night I itched incessantly. And I’m still itchy today. Any ideas for me? I called the pharmacist this am and she suggested taking 50 mg of diphenhydramine if I take the Norco again. It sure works great for the pain, but the itching is overwhelming.
