Anyone allergic to Tyl3 & percoset, but not hydrocodone?

    aka vicodin [hydrocodone + acetominophen]

    I am having the skin sensitivity reaction to the percoset, like what I had with the codeine, but fortunately milder so far.

    However, I would like to try a different opiod, maybe hydrocodone.

    I am thinking that morphine might be best since not synthetic, but it is really strong, I hear, and I probably don't need anything that strong. Can morphine tablets [15 mg] be cut up maybe?

    My pharmacist hasn't heard of Ultram so I guess we don't have Tramadol here in Canada yet, otherwise that would be another option that is not in the same family as codeine, from what I understand.

    so, has anyone reacted to codeine and to oxycodone but not to hydrocodone???

    If you think im fed up, you should see the GP...

    I am very interested in trying morphine pills, if I can cut them up [preferably in 4] and therefore take a very low dose, cause it's a strong med.

    But, I'm thinking since it's not synthetic I might not get skin sensitivity to it like I do with Tyl3 and the percoset.

    Can you cut the pills [not the MSContin, but the morphine PILLS] into 4?

    codiene make me itch and naueseated. percodin/cet makes me itch. hydrocodone-(lorcet 10mg, vicodin), methadone no side effects, work great. go figure.:)
    good and safe hunting :)

    maybe i will have better luck with the hydrocodone then. glad to know someone who gets skin problems with both tyl 3 and perc can do okay on something else, cause that's gonna be me!


    and glad you appreciate my opiod post.

    thanks to the rls people who compiled it!!!

    I am allergic to tylenol 3, percoset,codeine & morphene. Most pain medications but I can take them with phenergan.
    I have been on Ultram 50 mg for 2 years and when I have a bad flare up I go to mepergan fortis 50mg (strong but work & I don't get sick) hives or nauseated.
    I have HMO Insurance & they won't pay for most of the newer medications that help for my pain of FMS, CFIDS, & Osteoarthritis. Hope you find help that is not addictive, that's what I worry about.
