    Allergic reaction to pain medication

    I have in the past experienced an allergic reaction to pain medication. Just started scratching. I usually took the generic form of the drug. I took demoral in the past, no reaction and something in the darvon/darvaset family and didn't have a reaction.

    Is it generics?

    I am going for an operation in two weeks and it is a concern. Doctor gives vicodin, percosets and darvaset but the darvaset may not be strong enough.

    Any comments?

    Have you discussed this with your doctor? I'm sure he could adjust the med if you have problems with it.

    I also am sensitive to some pain meds. I cannot take any form of codeine or it makes me itch. I have had success with hydrocodone, though. No itching.

    I was just wondering why I would be allergic to some over others and if generic made a difference.

    << was just wondering why I would be allergic to some over others and if generic made a difference.>>

    Usually there is no difference between Brand and generic contents as far as the active ingredient involved. The only difference might be that they use different fillers/binders (ingredients to bind together the tablets, coloring, etc.) in their tablets or capsules. It is remotely possible that you might be allergic to that.
