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!!
