In brief: Histamine Release
What you are experiencing is not uncommon with opioids such as hydrocodone in vicodin, lortab and norco, codeine, morphine and similar meds.
Certain patients do better with different drugs. A mild antihistamine like Phenergan (promethazine) can sometimes help with the itching and/or nausea which occur with opioids.
