Hi everyone. Perhaps I was being a little over optimistic, bu I hoped that taking Hydroxicarbamide would improve my PV itching. I've only been taking it for 10 days, so perhaps it's a little early to judge, but since taking it my itching is definitely worse. it is now with me most of the time, not just after contact with water. I had to abandon my poor hubbie in bed last night, as I had terrible restless legs (an old complaint of mine) but now combined with awful itching. I have never had so horrible an experience of the itching.
I was wondering if anybody had tried the combination of an H1 inhibitor and Ranitidine? I've read about it, but don't know how effective it is. Failing that, does anyone find any particular antihistamine effective? I see my MPN specialist on Monday, so, poor man, he's going to have to put up with me moaning.
Maz, what ideas does Dr Harrison have on issue this which is so common to all of us? Any help would be wonderful.
