Try taking benadryl capsules as prescribed on the box. Tramadol can cause you to release histamines which makes you itchy. This is quite common and anti histamine pills will control it... It can also be a sign of taking to much which people need to be careful as Tramadol causes seizures at high doses..
I just came to this site to ask the same question. I am itching like mental and wondered if it was normal. But having read that Tramadol releases histimines in the body that makes a bit more sense. I only seem to itch from it after about 12 hours from taking when I go to bed. Do you think this is because it's hot in the bed? It's very strange. Even my teeth itch!!
I don't like taking pain pills very often so I've had a prescription for Tramadol 50 mg pills for about a year I've taken it a couple of times. After taking it the first time I started itching all over my body, especially in my crotch area and around my waist. The next day I had a blister that covered half of my penis and the skin peeled off within a couple of days leaving a nice scar. I was not sure if tramadol was the cause of the blistering at the time. Six months later I took another pill, itching all night blister the next day. I won't be taking it again.
Yes!!! I have been itching all day!! Hence the reason why I'm replying to you. I'm glad I am not the only one. Flushing these craps right now!!
I got a body rash (back, sides, chest) and sever itching. I stopped the Tramadol and rash disappeared. I'm back on Tramadol now for my neck, back, and sciatica pain. I'm also looking for solutions to control the rash and itching. Benadryl has not helped me.
