Hi, itching when taking Tramadol is much more common than many people are aware. I suffer from it myself. You should discuss this side effect with your doctor. Antihistamines will help, but chances are the itching will be a long term side effect, and i'm not sure if you should take an OTC antihistamine long term without your doctors advice?
Delila is correct about itching being a side effect of Tramadol. If you are not experiencing hives/rash but just have an extreme itching sensation, its most likely a side effect. I've taken Tramadol off and on for years and it caused me excruciating itching sensations, but not every time I took it. Call your doctor and ask if he/she thinks that's the issue and what to take for it.
