Thanks for the reply. No I'm not allergic to any other pain meds that I know of except Morphine (makes me itch until I go crazy). I guess I was just leary of calling the answering service because it wasn't an "emergency" per say. I have taken 2 Benadryl since my last post and it has helped but I still don't want to take the Darvocet.

Just so you know, itching by itself is not an allergy. Itching is a normal side effect of many opioids. For some it's a show stopper because the itching is so bad. But, if the itching is accompanied by shortness of breath, swelling of the throat, hives or any kind of breathing difficulty, then these things point to allergy.
