Histamine: All opioids have the potential to cause mast cells in the bloodstream and elsewhere to release histamine, causing itching, flushing and even outright hives, as well as nausea/vomiting and diarrhea. Oxycodone has less of this than many other opioids, but it can do it too, and some people are just sensitive to it. Taking an antihistamine may help - talk to the prescriber. ...Read more

These medications should be prescribed by experienced doctors. ...Read more
