I've taken pain meds...quite a bit over the years. I don't like to be in pain, and if there's a fix, I use it. Not to say that I abuse meds though...but anyway...
I had a horrible headache over the weekend, and when I took percocet, I itched all over. It wasn't the first time I've taken it, and I was wondering if it was a fluke, then I took darvocet the next day, and again, the itching. It was like all the sudden I had dry itchy skin EVERYWHERE. I didn't have hives, just the annoying itch you can't scratch.
Can you develop an allergy to meds over time? I know usually people take a medicine for the first time and react, but are you just as likely to develop an allergy when you've taken a medicine so many times before?
