I have your answer at least I had my answer. I went thru hell for 5 years after 24 hours the worse itching imaginable. I went Cold Turkey but here is the key. Get yourself a prescription for Hydroxyzine. Hydroxyzine is used to treat itching caused by allergies. It is an antihistamine and works by blocking a certain natural substance (histamine) that your body makes during an allergic reaction. The key is when you go cold turkey let the itch get to the point that you can't actually stand it anymore like a few hours after the itching starts, its hard but stretch it out. Take the Hydroxyzine and jump in a hot shower your itch will stop. Unfortunately it will start back up but you will find that the time becomes longer and longer between pills until your life is back in your hands no more itching. I only had to take 21 Hydroxyzine's out of the 30 pills it took about 45 days. Good Luck hopefully it will cure you. I went thru hell I understand.
YES I have been trying to get off it for what seems like forever! I am taking 1/3 of a 10mg pill and if I skip a day, uncontrollable itching. My body is literally left with bruises because the itching is so intense and will not stop. Please let me know if you have been able to cut it, I am getting desperate.
Not really, but did you wean off it, or cold turkey. that could make the difference.
It probably is an allergy that is now not being treated since you stopped taking an antihistamine.
