what is going on?

Last june i was hospitalized with pneumonia, being a smoker they put a patch on me, i am to understand that they are not for 24 hr use and should be moved from one place to another, when i was realeased i bought patches and had a very bad reaction my Dr. advised me to stop using them at once, since that time almost daily i will start itching all over and scratching causes me to have welts where ever i have scratched i have been taking 2 byendryl caps a day to stop the constant itching and i am wondering if i have developed some kind of allergy to nicotine, i still smoke but way less than before but i have had some depression due to the illness and then loss of my job and a failed relationship so the Dr. doesn't want me to take chantix until the depression is under control but this is making me crazy ...any ideas?

How much is the byendryl helping? I wonder if change of medication could help.

You might get a prescription to Well-Butrin.  The side effects aren't as scary as Chantix.
Good Luck!!
