I have been dx'd with Fibromyalgia and Systemic Lupus for 10 years. I have worked hard to manage my illnesses through diet, excercise and medicinal therapy. My Lupus well controlled with Plaqunill but I have to take pain meds occasionally to combat the Fibro and lupus pain. After I take Hydrocodone I get crazy, claw-your-skin-off itching. OTC meds are not strong enough all the time.n What are other perscription pain relieving options that have less of the itching side effect?
