... was unable to sleep last night. I called the pharmacy and they recommended benedryl but also instructed me to call my doctor. I'm waiting for a return phone call now, but I'm wondering if the itching will subside after using the patch over time. I'm getting good pain control so I'm wanting to keep using it, but the itching is driving me CRAZY! It wasn't as bad during most of today until this afternoon but now I'm right back to itching non-stop. I have no idea what to do. I've taken percocet and it also caused itching but it was tolerable. Any help/suggestions would be appreciated. If my doctor doesn't call me back soon I feel like I will have scratched myself raw.
