Codeine Pruritus Causes and Reviews
What is itching?
Itching is an irritating sensation that makes you want to scratch your skin. Sometimes it can feel like pain, but it is different. Often, you feel itchy in one area in your body, but sometimes you may feel itching all over. Along with the itching, you may also have a rash or hives.What causes itching?
Itching is a symptom of many health conditions. Some common causes are
- Allergic reactions to food, insect bites, pollen, and medicines
- Skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and dry skin
- Irritating chemicals, cosmetics, and other substances
- Parasites such as pinworms, scabies, head and body lice
- Liver, kidney, or thyroid diseases
- Certain cancers or cancer treatments
- Diseases that can affect the nervous system, such as diabetes and shingles
Most itching is not serious. To feel better, you could try
- Applying cold compresses
- Using moisturizing lotions
- Taking lukewarm or oatmeal baths
- Using over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream or antihistamines
- Avoiding scratching, wearing irritating fabrics, and exposure to high heat and humidity
Contact your health care provider if your itching is severe, does not go away after a few weeks, or does not have an apparent cause. You may need other treatments, such as medicines or light therapy. If you have an underlying disease that is causing the itching, treating that disease may help.

I have gained nearly 1 stone in 1 week after being on dihydroCodeine for 1 week. My diet has been less than normal due to constipation from the medication. My normal weekly exercise routine was 1 hour 5/6 days a week which at the moment I am unable to do.
Appreciate your feed back

I've been on DihydraCodeine for years and I have just had some tests done 'an MOT sort of thing' because I was getting a shortened of breath, pains in my chest like I was having a heart attack, and some results showed abnormalities in my haemoglobin but I am trying not to think about that until the next six weeks when I get checked again.. I don't know if this is because of the fact of the medication I am on or because of a side affect in the sense of that, I feel low energy levels, so therefore don't do the kinds of fitness I use to do, I totally do nothing at all from someone who has swam for the north of England in youth UK championships, I was a city club champion runner, youth champion, 56 out of over 10'000 people in the Tyneside Triathlon and cycled to the point my lat's had lat's :-) anyhoo I had a motor bike crash in 2001 and things haven't been the same since, my life has just became a prescription junky I cannot live without pain killing medication and have had pain killer addiction 3 times, but being left with the choice of unbearable pain or taking pain medication? I am now worrying about think this haemoglobin abnormality which could be as little as just being anaemic or cancer? sickle cell disease - well lets put it this way, I have spoken to someone but I am in hyper-drive thinking about what it could be!! trying to study is hard worrying about things, as I'm doing my level 5 beauty therapy, DTLLS along with other things and well pain and worry about my health is the last thing I need! I just want to have energy and be able to do more with my life and enjoy it, I am sick of being to tired to do anything worthwhile, my social life is the pits and I basically have no life other than my career, I miss going out clubbing, having a drink and enjoying life which I simply don't do because pain has affected me so much! of course my friends say have a drink it numbs the pain, which with pain killers I guess does, but I don't drink really and don't have a life really! I hold my piss in because I can't even be bothered to have one! that's how shit I feel and how down! I spend hours, days on my own and I think most of the people I meet are just how can I put this? fucked up, I don't really want to mix with them, there are so many people I like and that but I often feel it is one sided in the sense of, making an effort! so I think fuck em all!! I am in pain and make an effort, I have real genuine issues and I make an effort, others just can't even be bothered to make a cup of tea when I go to visit, I have to make it my self, I mean I'd never expect someone ever to make themselves a cup of tea in my house unless I couldn't walk, which of course I have been paralised since 2001 over 30 times for up to six weeks sometimes 8, so therefore I'd expect them too! but not if I am able to walk to my kitchen, just bad manners and anti social fucked up friends who I cannot be bothered to visit because they are lazy! so I end up being on my own! sit and get on with theory. family are no better and yes I am very angry and upset, but I keep it to myself instead of telling the whole fucking lot of them how fucking dysfunctional they all are! they piss me right off! I am a nice person, I have done many things for other people, even put them before my own well being and what do anyone do for me? fk all... well I would rather be on my own than share a minute with anyone, I mean they complain I don't invite them to mine now, guess why ass holes? I'm in pain and I get more joy from an 85 year old neighbour more than I ever do any of you!! Any way I have totally lost the point there but yea pain is shit... but I'd like to know more about the side affects yea !!

|I was given dihydroCodeine after being in hospital with tonsillitis that progressed into glandular fever. After my first dose of DihydroCodeine i felt spaced out and was staring at the ceiling laughing. I am unsure if I was supposed to be prescribed it as I am only 15. But on the other hand DihydroCodeine has helped me in a big way to reduce the swelling of my tonsils and also reduced the pain leaving me able to eat and drink with a little bit more ease.|
