Itching all over...Celebrex, Methotrexate, Hydrochlorothiazide the cause???
I have been taking 200 mg of Celebrex for OA for over 4 years with good results, 12.5 mg of HCTZ for over two years, and about two months ago began taking 5 tabs 2.5 mg of Methotrexate for RA. All was fine until a week ago when I started itching all over, head to ankles. The ONLY places I do not itch are my hands and feet. I feel like I am being tortured!! Benedryl did nothing to help so I am now taking RX antihistamie Amlodipine Besylate 5 mg four times a day and prednisone daily, plus my RA doctor immediately took me off the MTX and switched out the Celebrex and HCTZ for other meds (I am also going through bottles of Gold Bond Medicated lotion like crazy!). He is not sure which is the culprit so is trying this route before reintroducing the Celebrex and HCTZ. Has anyone else had the issue of whole body itching with any of these meds? I know any one of these drugs may have itching as an issue but with the timing I am leaning toward the methotrexate. Or is there something that can trigger an allergic reaction like what I am having? I know I have to be careful about being in the sun; my family went to the beach about a month ago but I would think a reaction would have been sooner if sun was the cause. Any ideas? Help!!
The problem could actually be Fibromyalgia, which many people with RA suffer from.

Txbetty and Hal, Like both of you, I have been on Celebrex for at least a year. I also take HCTZ 12.5 mg and started Methotrexate two months ago. I did have itching all over like you described, Txbetty, and I figured out that it was simply the particular brand of folic acid I was taking. It's been a long time since you wrote your post, but I happened to see it and wanted to comment. I assume you are taking folic acid if you are still on MTX; if you are still itching then it is something to

I have been on Celebrex for over a year and had fantastic results. I suffered pain in my neck and shoulders due to arthritis. Celebrex was like a miracle for me. I was going to physio for the pain, which did not good. Now after being pain free for one year I have been experiencing extreme itchiness all over my body. It feels like something crawling in my scalp, eyebrows, nose and beard. Then it feels like something biting me and there is nothing there and I have no bites . Yikes.

Breathing problems with cellebrex?
a documented side effect of celebrex is nasal congestion. I take celbrex regularly and suffer from nasal congestion often as a result.
